Local communities have an artistic, cultural and linguistic heritage which is often unknown outside the Arctic region.

The changes taking place in these societies, however, have a major impact on this heritage.

Whether it be the language transfer, global warming, the impact of tourism on artistic production, customer or traditional arts and craft, local communities must re-examine their heritage in a globalized Arctic.

Due to its exceptional location, small population and unique linguistic space, Greenland is the perfect setting for discussions on changes in its inhabitants’ traditional heritage.
