June 15th, 2015 - Relate North 2015: Call for Contributions

You are invited to submit artworks and/or an abstract for the art exhibition and symposium RELATE NORTH 2015. The symposium and exhibition is a collaboration between the University of the Arctic, ASAD thematic network, the University of Alaska Anchorage, the University of Lapland and the Kimura Gallery.

Arctic Sustainable Arts and Design (ASAD) is a Thematic Network that aims to identify and share contemporary and innovative practices in teaching, learning, research and knowledge exchange in the fields of arts, design and visual culture education. In summary, the network seeks to promote cooperation and collaboration between academic institutions and communities, advance art education amongst members and share both traditional and contemporary practices in teaching, learning and research.

Symposium and exhibition theme: What role can art play in representing a northern sense of culture, community and identity? How can art stimulate debate about indigenous issues and other northern and Arctic ways of living in challenging environments? What role can art play in communication of northern issues? How might art communicate some of the challenges facing those living in northern areas today? What role might art play in chronicling issues important to places and people in the north? These questions are central to this long-term project coordinated by ASAD.

The call is open to any media in contemporary art and presentations of community-based art, environmental art or art education projects.
