Arctic Imagination Arctic Imagination

The first Arctic Imagination event in Nuuk focuses on the traditional Greenlandic way of life – an account of life as hunter and of how rising temperatures and decreasing ice has impacted the hunting trade.

In just 100 years, the Arctic and the North Pole has been transformed from impassable, dangerous and wondrous outer territories to regions in need of our sense of responsibility and protection, for instance in the shape of environmental actions. 
Throughout 2017, five major libraries in New York, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo and Nuuk are collaborating on the unique project, “Arctic Imagination” where creative and artistic personalities and others with something to say – both verbally and visually – are heard.
