Partner Program: As Told From the North: A Journalist’s Perspective on Russia, Ukraine & the Arctic


April 8, 2024
4:00 pm


49th State Brewing Company
717 W 3rd Ave

Join us for an intimate discussion with award winning journalist, Arne Holm. Arne has spent months traveling the Russian border, exploring geopolitics and interviewing people affected by the conflict in Ukraine. This is your opportunity to ask him anything – what he’s learned, who he’s met, and what he thinks the future of Russia and Arctic relations will look like.

“In a number of different ways, everyone who lives in the North has woken up to a new everyday life, one that has taken a different direction. Perhaps towards a lasting change of Europe.”

– Arne O. Holm
