EadnámetMaid

A lunch-to-lunch digital programme, conceived, curated and organised by the artists’ collective Dáiddadállu with the support and collaboration of the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) and the Sámi Parliament in Norway. ‘EadnámetMaid’, meaning ‘our motherland too’ in Northern Sámi, is a programme where art and conversations on the topic of violence against nature and its effects on human lives are the main focus. The previous ‘SápmiToo’ in 2019 sought to empower women, artists and Sámi curatorial methodologies by placing gender roles, violence and sexual abuse at the centre of debate. This year there is an urgent need to discuss violence and abuse against nature. Ecocide in Sápmi and other Indigenous areas cannot be discussed without looking into how it affects the lives and health of various peoples.

‘EadnámetMaid’, meaning ‘our motherland too’ in Northern Sámi, is a programme where art and conversations on the topic of violence against nature and its effects on human lives are the main focus. The previous ‘SápmiToo’ in 2019 sought to empower women, artists and Sámi curatorial methodologies by placing gender roles, violence and sexual abuse at the centre of debate. This year there is an urgent need to discuss violence and abuse against nature. Ecocide in Sápmi and other Indigenous areas cannot be discussed without looking into how it affects the lives and health of various peoples.

‘EadnámetMaid’ is an ongoing programme in Áltá, Máze and Guovdageaidnu, where art and conversations will draw attention to the urgent need to discuss violence and abuse against nature. The programme consists of performances, panel discussions, artistic events, film screenings, music and exhibitions. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the Áltá programme was a scaled down and the iteration of ‘EadnámetMaid’ was exclusively live-streamed. The rest of the programme has been postponed to a later date.

The programme consisted of panel discussions, artistic events, film screenings and the launch of Susanne Hætta's Mázejoavku. Indigenous Collectivity and Art, an OCA/DAT publication.

‘EadnámetMaid’ was conceived and organised by Dáiddadállu, with the support and collaboration of the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) and the Sámi Parliament in Norway, and is a continuation of OCA’s and the Sámi Parliament’s long-term engagement with the town of Máze: iconic in recent Sámi political history, and its advocacy for the establishment of an international Indigenous artists’ residency there.
