A celebration of young Indigenous artistic achievement, Emerging North echoes the Arctic Winter Games’ values of the spirit of togetherness, legacy building, and Northern pride. Like the AWG athletes, many of the artists included in this exhibition are considered “emerging” or at the beginning of their careers. Playful and experimental, a diverse range of artworks explore themes of shared northern experiences, Indigenous futurisms, and the relationship between culture and play.
