Festival of Cool: The Arctic
Tuesday, December 10, 2019
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until Sunday, December 15, 2019
For nearly 20,000 years, humankind has populated the Arctic – a region that evokes both fascination and adversity. In these times, this part of the world is often seen only through the lens of international climate talks – as it is melting away overnight.
The second edition of Festival of Cool looks north to the Arctic Circle to explore the diversity of its people and Indigenous languages* through contemporary music, film, visual art and thought-provoking panels – proving that extreme cold can be cool.
Family friendly activities on Sat & Sun include: an exhibition of beautiful dog blankets & hangings, Marimekko Wrapping Paper Workshop, a Weaving Workshop and Arctic Films | Animated Shorts.
