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.

* 2019 is the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages
