SápmiToo addresses gender roles, violence and sexual abuse in Sápmi and Indigenous communities, their relationship to the colonial experience and how art can be at the centre of those conversations.The programme consists of lectures, conversations and discussions, film screenings, performance, poetry, yoik, music and exhibitions.

Zachary Kaplan is Executive Director of Rhizome, the leading born-digital art institution and longtime affiliate of the New Museum in New York City. Since 1996, Rhizome has championed born-digital art and culture through innovative exhibition, commissions, preservation, and software development programs.

During Kaplan's tenure, the organization has broadened its artistic and preservation programs. In 2016, Rhizome launched Net Art Anthology, a retelling of net art history through 100 works that define the field—which will come to a close with an exhibition opening at the New Museum in January 2019, and the release of a new publication. That same year, the organization founded the Webrecorder initiative, a major software development project to create open-source tools to easily archive and share complex, interactive websites. Recently, Rhizome's flagship art-tech program Seven on Seven, which pairs leading artists and technologists in to create new interdisciplinary projects, celebrated its 10th anniversary and saw its first China-based edition.

Before Rhizome, Kaplan worked at the Renaissance Society in Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
