We invite you for a social evening and cultural experience at the Planetariet and the Sami cultural house Árdna, which are both located at the campus of UiT - The Arctic University of Norway.

20:00-21:00: At Planetariet, we watch Ole Christian Salomonsen's movie "Extreme Auroras" that captures the most spectacular northern lights that were observed around Tromsø over a period of five years. The movie is 28 minutes long.

21:00-23:00 Then, we move to Árdna where a cosy atmosphere with a campfire invites us to relax and get to know about our Arctic experiences through Polar Bingo. Evening snacks/finger food will be provided.

** Please note: For this event, capacity is limited. Therefore, we ask you to register as soon as possible, and no later than January 23, GMT 12 pm. **
