Bringing together contributions by Sámi artists, collectives and organizations, this spotlight centres on artistic creation and exchange across Sápmi, the Sámi traditional territory stretching across the northern part of the Scandanavian Peninsula and large parts of the Kola Peninsula.
The projects profiled as part of this spotlight reflect on the work of individual Sámi artists, researchers and activists, as well as on the power of working collectively—to promote cross-cultural exchange, share intergenerational knowledges, achieve policy changes that affect Sámi livelihoods and culture, and to organize across artistic disciplines.
A short film presents a portrait of an interdisciplinary Sámi artist collective.
