Built on shared values of creativity, innovation, inclusivity, resilience and sustainability, this festival will serve to connect the Nordic Region – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland – and Canada through collaborations between artists, innovators and thinkers.
From January to December 2022, this national initiative will highlight contemporary Nordic art and culture in a range of disciplines, including performing arts (dance, theatre, circus and music), visual and digital arts, craft and design, literature, film, and culinary arts.
As one of Canada’s leading contemporary, multidisciplinary arts and culture institutions, Harbourfront Centre will lead the programming of Nordic Bridges, working with cultural organizations across Canada. The initiative will spark dialogue between Canadian audiences and artists while highlighting Nordic innovation.
This exciting initiative is seeded by a grant from the Nordic Council of Ministers, an intergovernmental organization dedicated to Nordic collaboration.
