Redefining the Arctic culture: Russian perspectives

The Arctic is being de ned and re-defined within the frameworks of industrialisation, securitisation and urbanisation.
During the session, we will travel between two emblematic Russian Arctic cities of Murmansk on the Kola Peninsula and Norilsk on the Taimyr Peninsula – delving into their current cultural strategies and futuristic visions. We will check the pulse of the northern cultural capital St. Petersburg and immerse into the depths of the Yakutian singing style, Toyuk.
