Welcome to Northern Sustainable Futures
NSF is cross-disciplinary project in its germination period located in the beautiful region of Norrbotten, in northern Sweden. A project in the making committed to provide a platform for cultural exchange and community engagement.
We believe it's important to bring people together through a diversity of practices, skills and culture, opening opportunities for development and learning, situated and responding to the local ecology.

NSF is a growing platform, its main hub located in the former school building in the village of Moskosel, and two smaller buildings: Lomträsk108 and Kläppteatern in Arvidsjaur Municipality. Shaping materials and ideas through projects and educational activities that engender a collision between arts, culture, social sciences, community, economic thinking and practice it's central to our ethos. NSF aims to implement a connecting nexus with the cultures of the area providing a space  where the local community, national and international practitioners participate, learn and draw inspiration from each other and the local resources. The project proposes to shape a framework that affects change in practical and effective ways engaging audiences with the complexities and challenges of our social and ecological landscape.

We are currently running a program of Artist Residencies in collaboration with Swedish Lapland AIR with the aim to weave novel connections between the local community and international practitioners.

Northern Sustainable Futures is located in the village Moskosel. There are no shops or any other amenities. The nearest airport and town is Arvidsjaur at 35 km, thereafter Luleå 132 km and Skellefteå 190 km. To know more info about Arvidsjaur, check this webpage >>
