Dash Café: Sámi – First Nation Culture in Northern Europe

Wednesday 23 May

In a nutshell

An evening of conversation, art and performance exploring Sámi first nation culture in Northern Europe and its impact worldwide.

Go on...

Together with Sámi artists, activists and musicians, Dash Arts explore contemporary Sámi culture, a growing awareness of Sámi first nation culture across the Nordic countries and the complexities of these relationships and their impact on the cultural and environmental landscape today.

Join guests for an evening of conversation, art and performance featuring Finnish Sámi musician Hildá Länsman from Utsjoki and musician & Helsinki-based sound designer Tuomas Norvio, who create ethereal soundscapes over thick and sampled electronic beats, academic and writer Neil Kent (author of The Sámi Peoples of the North), and multi-instrumentalist Jouna Lansman.
