Although concerned mainly with research and knowledge exchange in art and design education in the north and the Arctic, the contributors touch on issues and topics that will have wider interest. For example, the sociocultural and geopolitical dimensions of living in rural and urban settings in northern, remote and peripheral regions. In each essay, the notion of possible futures is about more than postulation, embracing art-infused praxis and inquiry with Indigenous and nonindigenous groups in the north and the Arctic. The book will interest a wide constituency including, for example, anthropologists, cultural geographers, sociologists, artists, designers, art educators and practice-based researchers. In addition, the chapters will be relevant to students in the arts or education and policymakers concerned with Arctic and northern issues on contemporary art, craft, design, and education.
