Beyond Horizons_Debate: Agenda: The High North

After the Screening of Beyond Horizons Atelier Nord and The Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art wish to invite you to a panel debate at Kulturhuset, Verkstedet on Wednesday, January 14th 3.15 PM.

The governance of natural resources and the right to land and sea are topics of particular importance to people living in the north. Several issues relating to these themes will be presented with the video programme Beyond Horizons as a starting point. What makes these themes relevant for artists, and how can the contemporary art scene contribute in the current political climate? How are local and global needs played against each other in the ever-increasing exploitation of natural resources in the High North?
Light refreshments will be served.

Panel:
Geir Tore Holm – Visual Artist and Director of the film “The Right to the Land and the Water”
Svein Pedersen – Curator and Managing Director, The North Norwegian Art Center
Brigt Dale – Researcher, Nordland Research Institute
Moderator – Hanne Hammer Stien, Curator.
