As part of our year-long multidisciplinary initiative Nordic Bridges, Nordic Spotlights will explore contemporary Nordic culture from coast-to-coast. Aimed at raising the profile of Nordic culture abroad and strengthening the interaction between Nordic cultural sectors and the rest of the world, Harbourfront Centre is curating a series of unique experiences that highlight contemporary Nordic arts and culture. 

From January through December 2022, Nordic Spotlights will highlight modern Nordic art and culture in various disciplines, from performing arts, visual and digital arts to craft and design, literature, culinary arts, and film. Through collaborations between artists, leaders and thinkers, programming will build on shared values of creativity, innovation, inclusivity and sustainability between Canada and the Nordic region – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Åland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland.
