Arctic Arts Summit 2019: The Arctic as a Laboratory for sustainable art and cultural policy

Co-hosted by UArctic,
04 June 2019, Finland

The second Arctic Arts Summit will be organized on 4-5 June 2019 in Rovaniemi, Finland.

The Arctic region is changing rapidly. On the one hand, ecological, cultural, social and economical changes pose challenges for well-being and sustainable development and on the other hand, some of the changes also create new possibilities. In the Arctic Arts Summit 2019 the challenges and circumstances in the Arctic are seen as 'laboratory' in which sustainable art and cultural policy is developed in collaboration with all of the Arctic counties. Artists and representatives of art and cultural policy will discuss the theme and promote circumpolar collaboration. The event will be the second Arctic Art Summit: the first one was arranged in Harstad, Norway, in 2017.
