Nordic Bridges cultural initiative begins today!

N ordic art and culture will be placed firmly in the spotlight when the Nordic Bridges cultural initiative officially launches in North america on 27 January 2022. Built on pillars like resilience and artistic creativity, throughout 2022 programme partners across Canada will offer engaging performances and conversations regarding Nordic artists and thinkers. The Nordic Area has a strong, high-quality plus diverse art and lifestyle sector, which is in great demand internationally. The Nordic ministers for culture initiate initiatives outside the Nordic Area that will lead to greater conversation between Nordic culture and the rest of the world and enhance the profile of Nordic culture. Nordic Bridges in North america is the third major joint Nordic cultural initiative by the ministers for culture, subsequent on the previous initiatives Nordic Matters in London and Nordic Cool in Washington.  

Nordic Lighting, Design Matters, and Nordic Talks

The year-long cultural venture has been initiated by the Nordic ministers for culture and is directed by Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. After being delayed for a year due to the pandemic, the Nordic ministers meant for culture are delighted to announce the kick-off of the most extensive Nordic cultural venture abroad to date.  
The programme for Nordic Links and the co-operation between performers, innovators and thinkers are built on four key pillars: artistic innovation, accessibility and inclusion, indigenous perspectives, plus resilience and sustainability. They are highly important issues in both Canada and the Nordic Region.

International collaboration is crucial

Programme highlights from Canadian partner organisations such as Toronto International Film Event, BreakOut West and Nationwide Arts Centre, include performing arts, visual and digital arts, craft and style, literature, film, culinary artistry, societal debates and journalism.
Nordic musicians and stakeholders from all the Nordic countries will work together with and perform alongside Canadian artists at celebrations, arts institutions, and museums across the country.  
In line with current pandemic methods, outdoor and online occasions will kick the effort off, with larger-scale collaborations, such as live festivals and in-person performances, to follow later on in 2022. At Harbourfront Centre – one of Canada’s leading arts and lifestyle institutions – the opening is long-awaited.
