Further Information

Norðurslóðir/The Northern Paths is a multidisciplinary festival that creates a social environment of art and culture. We are aiming to make a festival which will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland 19.- 20. October. The name "northern paths" comes from the Icelandic word Norðurslóðir. The Northern paths include all countries in the northern hemisphere such as Greenland, Canada, Iceland, Russia, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Faroe Islands and Alaska. We are using different kinds of art as a medium of communication to learn about each other in the Northern and Arctic countries. Our goal is that our festival will have a positive impact on local communities and connect people across the Nordic borders.

Why?
For better or worse we have a lot of opinions about each other in the North. For example the common conception is that the Finns drink a lot of vodka and the Swedes are a bit too politically correct and the Danish language is impossible to understand for other Nordic people. And those are just a few of many prejudices. That the word ‘grønlænderstiv’ (meaning ‘drunk as a Greenlander’) has been admitted to The Danish Dictionary is a more serious and sensitive subject. For many people ‘grønlænderstiv’ is a condescending word presenting the Greenlandic people as undifferentiated stereotypes. Det Danske Sprog- og Litteraturselskab (Danish institute for language and literature) who decides which words are admitted to the dictionary argues that the dictionary is not a moral code; it simply adopts the words the Danes are using. If ‘grønlænderstiv’ is a word used so much by the Danish people that it has to be adopted as part of the official Danish language, there must be some presumed opinions about the Greenlandic people in Denmark. And presumably there are prejudices within all of the Nordic and Arctic countries about the people who live there. But what do we actually know about each other in the North and Arctic in general? And what can we learn from each other and about each other? This is what we want to investigate with Norðurslóðir/The Northern Paths.

We have four interesting names, all related to the arctic or the North, lined up for you.

The amazing blog Sisterhood and Sun will exhibit their beautiful photos and you can read about the ideology and stories behind their pictures. Behind the blog are the two sisters Wiola and Karolina Chudek and the photographer Maciek Maciejowski. Check out Sisterhood and Sun.

Tahnee Prior, an interdisciplinary researcher who’s heavily engaged in gender roles in the arctic, will travel all the way from Canada to give us a talk concerned women's roles and contributions to northern politics, research, art, activism and daily life.

The musical feature in the programme will be presented by the nordic band Isländërs, which is a musical and cultural exchange. A platform where languages, folklore and scandinavian interaction define the soundscape in which new nordic ballads and old evergreens appear. It’s music for the jukebox, for the bonfire, for the meditation and the creation. The Nordic Music Prize (2016) nominee Teitur Magnússon (ISL) and the critically acclaimed danish songwriter Mads Mouritz formed the band Islanders in June 2017. Listen to Isländërs music here. The evening will end with open mic and DJ
