As has become the norm for Relate North events, scientific presentations took place in parallel with an art exhibition. The theme of the symposium, Collaborative Art, Design and Education, highlighted the benefits and challenges of cooperation in various fields of art and science, focusing particularly on teacher training. Participants at the international symposium traveled from eight different countries from as far afield as Alaska and the Komi Republic, Russia.
