ONGOING/Siunissaq


SIUNISSAQ 2015 - 2020

Siunissaq means the future in Greenlandic, and is the name of an art-based, psychosocial project with young people initiated in Kalaallit Nunaat/ Greenland in 2015. Professor of Community Psychology at Ilisimatusarfik (University of Greenland) and visual artist Tina Enghoff were both pioneers in starting the project Siunissaq.

Combining art, philosophy and research, the goal of Siunissaq is to create social resilience in stable, supportive communities with a high level of sustainability, well-being, and creativity.
More than 600 young people have participated in Siunissaq’s workshops, and they and their communities have participated actively in the resulting exhibitions and events in public space in Tasiilaq, Nanortalik, Maniitsoq, Nuuk, Kangerlussuaq and Atammik in Kalaallit Nunaat/ Greenland. Based on trust, dialogue and respect for the realities people in the Arctic face, the approach of the project has global resonance and relevance for communitybased projects and challenging the effects of colonialism.
