Exploring Sustainability Under the Midnight Sun 18 – 20 June 2018

In partnership with the Arts Promotion Centre Finland and the City of Rovaniemi (www.visitrovaniemi.fi) Res Artis is excited to announce our 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.

Early bird registration ends on 31 January, 2018.
