THE FENNIA PRIZE EXHIBITION VISITS ARCTIC DESIGN WEEK
The worlds's northernmost design event, Arctic Design Week in Rovaniemi, starts next week. This year's theme is most important: Arctic Transition. How are these challenging changes met with Arctic expertise and especially with design? One of the regional trades is tourism, and developing customer experience in tourism will be the main subject of the Mish Mash Seminar on Thu 23 February. The benefits of Arctic technologies and design to the businesses are the subject on Friday. Architects from the northern parts of Finland, Sweden and Norway will discuss the same subjects at the North Calotte Symposium. Naturally there will be popup design shops, seminars and panel discussions, and many many exhibitions – including the Fennia Prize 17 exhibition, starting its tour here. The Fennia Prize exhibition will be on show at Korundi House of Culture until mid-March.
The organizers of Arctic Design Week are the City of Rovaniemi, Rovaniemi Regional Development Agency, and the University of Lapland Faculty of Art and Design in co-operation with Science Centre Pilke, Arktikum, Korundi and several business partners. The event is now organized for the ninth time.
