Round Table Discussion

Humanization of the Arctic. International Cooperation

18:30 — 20:00
General Staff Building 6/8 Palace sq., St. Petersburg

The round table focuses on the humanitarian development of the Arctic, analysis of the role of museums in preserving its cultural and historical heritage, as well as reflection on the current global and domestic trends in international cooperation in the Arctic as part of museum and cultural and educational projects.

The humanization of the Arctic regions is becoming a new trend and necessity of the 21st century. What kind of humanitarian resources of its own does the Arctic have? What can society gain from the development of humanitarian resources in the Arctic and for the Arctic? What successful practices and barriers exist for the integration of the experience of museums in the circumpolar zone, and what results does such integration bring today to individual cultural institutions, local communities, states, and the world? How are museums involved in dynamic changes in the Arctic region and what is their role in these changes today?
