Building Bridges in High North

OCTOBER 26th 2019
Nordic House, Reykjavík, Iceland

In this seminar we discussed about performing arts in High North, our goals and actions, and had two artist groups telling about their artistic processes. 

Mette Moestrup and Miriam Karpantschof, a feminist performance duo from Denmark were telling about their work with SHE'S A SHOW.

 The artists from Lunch / Hádegisverđur shared their thoughts and feelings about the process the day after the premiere.

NORTHERN PLATFORMS

Northern Platforms are encounters of performing arts professionals related to the High North region. Organised during 2018-2019, the platforms have taken place in different festivals in Finland, Iceland, Norway and Greenland. 

The topics of these platform discussions have rosen from the organizing festival and the area it operates. The aim of the platforms have been to help and give tools to artistic work in High North area, as well as to share the views and best practises on how to work in the High North region in the field of performing arts.

The topics have varied from co-operating in cross-disciplinary art projects to post-colonialistic issues and organising a festival in High North region. In the last platform in Nuuk we were happy to present and open up the first artistic project the Network has operated: Lunch / Hádegisverđur.
