03-05.06.2019 Arctic Arts Summit 2019 in Rovaniemi
Hanna Lempinen will chair the panel “Culture, politics & cultural politics”. The rapid economic, ecological and social changes shaping the Arctic region and its environments and communities are also impacting cultures and cultural life in the circumpolar north. Amidst these processes of change, cultural policies and programmes have a pivotal role in promoting cultural diversity and activity and cultural sustainability in the region. Meanwhile, policies from other sectors of the society also create, enable and constrain the conditions for culture, cultural activities and cultural sustainability without even specifically aiming to do so. The session will focus on the interplay of culture, politics and cultural policies and politics in the Arctic.
