upn (aka. UpNorth Festival) is a small organisation based in Bodø, Northern Norway, above the Arctic circle. The organisation’s main focus is modern/urban contemporary art and the goal is to present high quality art for the public – in environments you wouldn´t normally expect to find this type of artistic expression.

upn organizes and conducts exhibitions, commissioned artworks, workshops, art directing and other projects. We also organize an art festival. This festival changes its location within the Arctic area.
