Pikene på Broen

Pikene på Broen is a collective of curators and producers based in the northeastern Norwegian town of Kirkenes. Located 15km from the Russian border and 50km from the Finnish border the town of Kirkenes is ideally placed for cross-border cooperation and cultural exchange in the Arctic. Pikene på Broen was established in 1996 and has spent the past 20 years realising large and small scale cultural projects – they call these ‘border-crossing exercises’ which provide new perspectives on the north while initiating discussions on themes relevant to the Barents Region.

Barents Spektakel

Barents Spektakel is Norway’s most border-crossing festival!

The festival is a cultural-political cocktail with contemporary art and music, theatre and performance, literature and architecture and seminars and debates as its ingredients – all spiced with current issues related to the Barents Region and the High North in general. The festival first started in 2004 and in February 2018 will transform Kirkenes into a Barents Metropolis for the 14th time.

BAR International

Hosted by Pikene på Broen, the BAR International artist-in-residency program is open for artists of all genres along with musicians, architects, researchers and curators who are interested in exploring the Barents borderland in transition – an area which is a gateway to Russia, a crossroad for political decisions in the Arctic and a laboratory for creative solutions to economic, cultural and social challenges in the border region.
