ARTIVAL TALKS: Art, Mobility and Migration

ARTIVAL Talks webbplats v2

Join us for an enlightening and thought-provoking ARTIVAL Talk that explores the intricate relationship between Art, Mobility, and Migration. Delve into the multifaceted ways in which these three interconnected concepts intersect and shape our understanding of the contemporary art field in the Nordic region.

From exploring the stories of migrants and refugees through visual arts, spoken word, and movement, to delving into the ways art serves as a catalyst for social change and empowerment, this event aims to foster dialogue and deepen our collective understanding of these pressing issues. Discover how artists across various mediums utilize their creativity to challenge stereotypes, confront borders, and celebrate the resilience and diversity of migrant communities. Gain insights from experts who will explore the impact of mobility and migration on artistic production, cultural exchange, and the formation of hybrid identities.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Geir Lindahl, Senior Advisor at Nordic Culture Point.

Invited speakers

  • Yohann Floch, Founder at Fresh Arts Coalition Europe – FACE.
  • Sarah Kazmi, Co-Founder at Verdensrommet.


ARTIVAL Talks are organised by IMMART, Nordic Culture Point and Globe Art Point as a part of ARTIVAL RE:CONNECT, a Nordic multilingual cultural festival taking place across the Nordic region in 2023. The festival a widely diverse array of actors together in a sustainable manner to co-create and reflect on issues of inclusion and belonging with exhibitions, performances, talks, workshops, recitals, and more, at a time when many of us around the globe are striving to reconnect, to ourselves, our families, and our communities in one way or another.

ARTIVAL Talks are a collection of live-streamed and virtual discussions, debates and conversations on the themes of ARTIVAL – a festival that places artists, the artistic process and advocacy at the centre. The central aim of the Talks, which began in May 2023, is to facilitate gaining a clearer understanding of different processes, perspectives and viewpoints that exist in Nordic artscapes, by bringing artists, cultural workers, activists, human rights experts, public officials and civil society together to exchange ideas and share experiences of their successes (and failures), good (and bad) practices, and the opportunities (and challenges) present in the broad landscape of the Nordic arts and cultural sector.
