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
