Arctic Culture Lab


Welcome to the Arctic Culture Lab, a multidisciplinary platform for artistic research thatACL logo reacts on the international vibrancy of the North and unites artists, curators, educators, researchers, cross border specialists, geopolitical experts, as well as producers.

Arctic Culture Lab is an Arctic organisation located in Ilulissat, Greenland at 70° N surrounded by a stunning land of contrasts where Arctic Culture Lab offers a platform for critical thinking about the increasing artistic interest in the North.


However, short is the way from the traditions, which are perfectly documented in the local museums and often kept in form of oral tradition between elders of the communities to the latter-day challenges the Arctic has to face in times of global warming and industrialization. The Arctic Culture Lab takes this vulnerability of the traditional coastal culture as an initial point for research, think tanks and invites to one-of-a kind art productions that try to reflect on Arctic topics through community involvement, residencies and exhibition projects.
