THE FESTIVAL / PROGRAMME

In line with our 2016 festival production, we aim to create an immersive experience hosting a variety of artforms and discussions. Our vision is to present a diverse perspective on what the Arctic means to people who live in it, visit it, and are inspired by it, by producing a festival featuring diverse artforms and media, and artists from all around the Arctic and the world.

JOIN OUR FACEBOOK EVENT!

For our 2017 festival we are launching a pilot artArctica residency 2017, which will take place one week before the festival. During the residency we will host ten artists from different countries and disciplines, who will work intensively in developing previous work or producing new work in collaborations, which will be presented at the festival during the evening performances. Alongside the showcases from the residency, we will also host a variety of artists from around the world and various disciplines.

artArctica festival 2017 is currently supported by Nordisk Kulturfond, Kulturkontakt Nord, and Helsinki Culture Centre.
