This collective includes four researcher-artists who focus on the questions of social responsibility, arctic nature, global and local peripheries and cultural identities. The Poetic Peripheries artist collective visualises and articulates the tension between margins and mainstreams. Poetic Peripheries create, share and visualize the arctic landscape through images of arctic waters, landscapes and people. This project, which combines the personal projects of its four members, will engage communities in power plays through visual self reflective discussions.

In our project we will bring together an interest in experimental techniques, such as artivist interventions, video and photography, textile and fashion design, combined with an urge to comment on the structures and living conditions found in Arctic societies as well as in other global margins. Through our project, we seek to play our part in advancing social and environmental challenges by pointing out injustices in the communities we will focus on in our work. Our project will reflect on personal, intimate stories and social change, with the purpose to evoke the political and empowering nature of art as a space where we seek new, alternative interpretations of Arctic and other peripheral environments and their inhabitants.
