The Week of the Arctic 2017 culminates in Anchorage with the North by North festival, a variety of Anchorage activities from May 11 through 14 designed to celebrate the state’s Arctic, share that Arctic with community members and attract visitors from other Arctic states to learn, exchange and build. North by North is an introduction to and reclaiming of Arctic innovation, resilience and sustainability. Each is driven by local and public participation spanning the Circumpolar North.
Throughout the four days, there will be several art installations, public talks, an arts and crafts expo, exhibition tours, Arctic films, music, dancing, Northern foods and beer, discussions, and Arctic game demonstrations at the Anchorage Museum and select downtown venues.
The Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting Streaming, panel discussions and Arts, Crafts and Cultural, and Expo are all included with Anchorage Museum admission, which is free May 13 and 14.
