artArctica festival 2016

Started 15.01.2016

Ended 28.02.2016

artArctica festival (11.-13.2.2016) is an international and multi-arts festival, taking place in the heart of Helsinki. Movies, exhibitions, photography, discussions, music, dance, poetry - featuring artists from every corner of the Arctic, this festival has something for everyone. And we need you: help us make this an unforgettable experience for everyone, and be part of something bigger!

The ecosystems and cultures of the Arctic are beautiful and inspiring – yet at the same time fragile. We believe that we have a lot to learn from people living in the Arctic, in closer connection to the world around them. That the Arctic is so much more than just an empty, icy landscape – it is alive, fascinating, full of stories.

We passionately believe the Arctic is an inspiring place, and we want to share this with you.

So we put together this festival.

Like a snowball turning into an avalanche, artArctica festival is a small idea grown big: we’re now hosting photography exhibitions, installations, dance and music performances, feature films and short film selections – and we are lucky to have participants from every corner of the Arctic: Greenland, Canada, Russia, Norway, Finland, Denmark, the Faroe Islands.

In the final stages of production, we have come a long way – and now we need your support to ensure we produce a high-quality event, for both artists and audience.

We still need to cover certain travel expenses for the artists, as well as production expenses like printing large-format photographs and securing royalties rights for the films. By supporting this project, you are directly supporting grass-roots art-making in the Arctic.

We are lucky to be supported by cultural foundations and grants, as well as various independent groups and
organisations – and we need one last nudge, and that’s you. It’s the person we’re making this festival for: the
Arctic enthusiast (even if you don’t know it yet), the artist, the admirer, the traveller, the story-teller. You. We
need you, because without you our festival is just a private show.

So help us make this festival a beautiful and unforgettable get-together – and be part of something bigger. Whether you can visit the festival, or live far away, but think this is the kind of thing that is worth happening, you can support us in one way or another.

The festival is partly funded by Kulturkontakt Nord and Letterstedtska föreningen.

It is happening in collaboration with the following organisations:

Global Music Centre (FI)
City-Sámit (FI)
Walhalla Film (FI)
Finnish Arctic Club (FI)
Arctic Museum Nanoq (FI)
Skábmagovat Film Festival (FI)
Uummannaq Polar Institute (GL)
