Exploring Sustainability Under the Midnight Sun 18 – 20 June 2018.
In partnership with the Arts Promotion Centre Finland and the City of Rovaniemi (http://www.visitrovaniemi.fi/)
Res Artis is excited to announce the next meeting Exploring
Sustainability under the Midnight Sun in Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland
from 18 – 20 June 2018.
This 3-day meeting will address the theme of Residencies and
Sustainability from different angles – The sustainability of the arts
residencies field; Indigenous aspects; Interdisciplinary residencies;
the intersections between curators and residencies; and the concept of
‘ethical tourism’. Questions that will be discussed include: How can
residency operators pursue their activities to better meet the
principles of sustainability? How can residencies contribute to
sustainable regional development? And what is the social and economic
impact of residencies?
The event will take place in the remote but culturally dynamic and
vibrant Arctic region at the height of the Midnight Sun, offering a
topical location for the meeting’s focus on sustainability. Participants
from all over the globe are invited to experience the unique
environmental arts scene of Northern Finland and learn more about
Indigenous aspects to residencies and the need for ethical tourism
through the local Sami people.
