Arctic Congress in Bodø, Norway

Arctic Congress Bodø 2024 is a unique event that combined the International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences (ICASS) XI, UArctic Congress 2024, and High North Dialogue 2024.

The congress took place from 29 May to 3 June 2024 in Bodø, Norway, hosted by Nordland Research Institute and Nord University. An illustration of Arctic cooperation, these three conferences were brought together for the first time in Bodø (European Capital of Culture 2024). The congress included plenary sessions, network activities, and social and cultural events. This brought many opportunities for researchers, policymakers, businesses, and students to increase their connectivity and knowledge exchange on Arctic issues.
AAI presented in sessions 4.3.3 Arctic cultures and arts; Arctic Indigenous Sound- and Voicescapes and 4.3.2 Arctic cultures and arts; Looking for Sources of Resilience through Arts, Science, Local and Indigenous Knowledge (ArtSLInK): experience of Arctic StoryWorlds. Our new article Artistic deconstruction on imperial imagery in Euro-Arctic Russia will be published later this year.

Our Books at B*stard Art Book Fair

North 2.0. Contemporary Culture and Art, anthology The Living North and catalog Threads of our last year project presented at the art book fair in Lillehammer, which is organized by Oplandia Center for Contemporary Art during the Literature Festival.

This year's title for the B*stard Art Book Fair was Borderland. The title is linked to the Norwegian Literature Festival's overall theme, which explores the concept of border.

In the programme, they wrote among other things: "Few words are as charged right now as the word border. After a few decades where the world has shrunk dramatically and borders have almost been erased, pandemics, war and the refugee crisis have once again caused countries and people to close themselves off from the outside world.”
