Norwegian Crafts, in collaboration with The Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts (Norske Kunsthåndverkere) and Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum, is hosting an online panel discussion as a part of the programme for the Annual Craft Exhibition 2020 (Årsutstillingen).
Sustainability transitions that address intertwined ecological and social issues concern a growing number of creative practitioners and cultural institutions. However, the word 'sustainability' gets thrown around to the extent that the concrete matters at stake easily become blurred. Instead of addressing sustainability conceptually, this panel takes a practice-led approach. We will discuss how various aspects of sustainability are present in the practices of a Sámi duojár, a jewellery artist with a classical goldsmith’s education, and a multidisciplinary artist.
Panellists: Sara Inga Utsi Bongo, Philipp Spillmann and Trond Ansten
Moderator: Ki Nurmenniemi
The event will be held in English.
