Russian Arctic Style: From the Epos to the Product
8 September 2022
11:00—12:00
Well-known regional brands are often indicators of a territory’s economic development. The imprint of unique images and values that are characteristic of each individual territory and expressed in the final products of creative entrepreneurship is becoming a reliable tool for shaping a local identity and enhancing a region’s appeal and recognition.
● What is ‘Arctic style’? Does national identity have to be used in a product in the new realities? How should we work with visual and symbolic codes and convert cultural codes into finished products?
● How do contemporary artists adapt and use cultural codes in their works?
● What projects could help expand the market for creative goods and services?
● What challenges do entrepreneurs in the Arctic face in their activities? What needs to be done to make the undervalued work of a northern artisan more popular and better paid?
● How should we resolve the problem of selling the products of folk craftspeople from the northern regions? How can we ensure that small and medium-sized enterprises that produce local products can the export market?
