Sonic Acts start three year programme highlighting Norwegian and Russian borderlands

Over the next three years the Sonic Acts festival will be undertaking an arts research and commissioning programme in the Barents Region – the industrial borderland between Northern Norway and Russia, around the Arctic Circle.

The first journey to the region will take place between 9–12 October, and the project will involve new artworks which will be shown in the region, plus lectures, presentations, concerts and workshops.
