The aim of the LiLa series is to bring together MA and PhD students and scholars from different disciplines and circumpolar higher education institutions to develop culture-sensitive and sustainable art-based research methodologies on sociocultural landscapes of the Arctic region.

The participating MA and PhD students and scholars came from the ASAD partner institutions Nord University of Norway, the University of Lapland (Finland), the Umeå University (Sweden) and the University of the West of Scotland. The participants came from the disciplines of art education, general teacher education, fine arts, media and clothing design.
