Nearby hosts, gurus and artists will also deliver an knowledge of the historical past that has shaped today’s societies. Curators will get insights into the principal issue of our program: the colonization of Sapmi, other minority representations, and how that connects to local and world considerations right now including environmental and sustainability difficulties.” 

Via the knowledge of important community collaborators, and complemented by readings about community socio-political heritage, curators will partake in a conceptually connected method of visits to artist studios and art establishments – an immersive introduction to the artistic follow, manufacturing, and dissemination in the host areas and an opportunity to hook up with friends. 

The visiting curators also give back again to the communities by presenting community shows about the perform they are conducting in their household ecosystem and by participating in important conversations with hosts and artists in the sites we pay a visit to. The discussions that commence as formal or casual chats during our method typically direct to real collaborations within the following number of many years.
