A Workshop on Arctic Youth and Culture in a Digital Era

The first Arctic Arts Summit, which took place in June 2017 in Harstad, Norway, brought about promising momentum toward greater circumpolar partnerships in arts and culture. The purpose of this workshop is to continue this momentum and strengthen the conversation by engaging a broader base of northern youth. This conversation would also link well to the Emerging leaders program.

The future of Arctic cultures and identities are dependenton its youth, their ability to share and express their culture, as well as the choices they make. These choices include whether youth decide to continue to live in the north, to speak Indigenous languages and maintain or adapt cultural practices. While growing up in a digital era can been perceived to challenge aspirations to maintain traditional lifestyles, there are young people across the north today who are reclaiming their sense of cultural pride and identity, often using digital tools and new technologies. They are not choosing between holding on to traditions or embracing globalization; they have their own vision for the future of the Arctic that comprises both. Composing of young northern leaders, creative artists, cultural industry practitioners and policy-makers, the Arctic Youth and Culture in a Digital Era workshop will feature facilitated discussions in plenary and break-out group format.

Co-moderated by Artur Wilczynski, Ambassador of Canada to Norway and Maria Utsi, Director, Arctic Arts Festival
