Live screening of an exclusive lecture for Members.

Join us for an exclusive sneak preview of the upcoming Citi exhibition Arctic: culture and climate, in this lecture led by curator Amber Lincoln.

Home to rich cultures for nearly 30,000 years, the Arctic is far from the inhospitable hinterland it's often imagined to be.

From 28,000-year-old mammoth ivory jewellery to modern refitted snow mobiles, the objects in this immersive exhibition reveal the creativity and resourcefulness of its indigenous peoples. Developed in collaboration with Arctic communities, the exhibition celebrates their ingenuity and resilience. It tells the powerful story of respectful relationships with icy worlds and how Arctic peoples have harnessed the weather and climate to thrive.

This lecture includes a complimentary drink. Please note that this is a live relay screening of the lecture that will be taking place in the BP Lecture Theatre.
