Conference on Arctic Heritage and Tourism
Local communities have an artistic, cultural and linguistic heritage which is often unknown outside the Arctic region. The changes taking place in these societies, however, have a major impact on this heritage.
Whether it be language transfer, global warming, the impact of tourism on artistic production, customer or traditional arts and crafts, local communities must re-examine their heritage in a globalized Arctic.
Due to this exceptional location, small population and unique linguistic space, Greenland is the perfect setting for discussions on changes in its inhabitants’ traditional heritage.
This conference organized by the French Institute in Denmark and Ilisimatusarfik is part of a project called "Changing Arctic" which consists of four national events (The Urban Arctic, Sweden, Health in the Changing Arctic, Finland, Heritage in the Changing Arctic, Greenland, Environment and Governance, Norway) each one articulating a scientific workshop and a public conference.
Presentation will take place in either Danish or English, an interpreter will provide an instantaneous translation.
The participation is free but registration to the scientific workshop is mandatory. For more information and registration visit: https://indico.cern.ch/event/533383/.
