NATUR: North Atlantic Tales is a new platform enabling artists and archives to work together researching and create new works around the human stories connecting archives, memories and collections that link the people of Denmark, Iceland, Norway and the UK.
We are looking for the stories, collections, archives and memories that connect Iceland, Denmark, Norway and the UK, along with organisations and individuals that want to work with artists in residence to bring them to life. Your work could be the official history of a nation or a very personal exploration of your own heritage. From institutional archives, research projects to family collections we want to hear from you to tell the rich story of our shared cultural heritage.
Our starting point is seven themes: folklore and language, merchants, fisheries, industrialisation, conflict, oil and women’s history. Using the archives and stories of each country to inspire new artwork the end result will be will become a platform for engaging with collective North Atlantic histories through artistic eyes- shaping future common identities.
If you are interested in collaborating on the ‘NATUR’ project or promoting your projects or research through our platform, then please fill in the online form.
