• Everything Arctic

Take an armchair exploration through some of the wonders of the Arctic. Visit a landscape as richly diverse as its seasons: flat sweeping vistas of the Western Arctic, gentle rolling hills of Cape Dorset and the glorious fiords of Baffin Island.The cultural treasures of the North––the art-prints and carvings and their makers––will be introduced, set against a historical backdrop. We will also take a short side trip to Greenland to discover examples of its sculpture.

This illustrated talk offers the rare opportunity to meet the hardy yet gentle Inuit of the Arctic and catch a glimpse into their way of life. This three-lecture series is rich in description and visuals––but not overwhelmed with historic dates.

We will also “meet” some of the people who took the plunge North; John Rae and Franklin; Hudson Bay factors such as Maud Watt and Duncan Pryde. Heroes, heroines and those who failed.
