Skrei Convention is a project which re-imagines the historic trade routes of dried and salted codfish from the North of Norway to the Baltic Sea as far as Germany, the UK, Italy and Portugal. Funded by Creative Europe, Skrei Convention is part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 programme. Partners are CERS Italia, the Ílhavo Maritime Museum and Museum Nord. Skrei Convention is currently building a new rich knowledge environment with the development of Skrei.Net, a multimedia interactive archive which aims to create the largest collection of resources on the history, trade routes and uses of Arctic Cod. The project will see the involvement of three international artists working alongside local communities, to collect and explore historical, political, economic or sociological perspectives on Arctic Cod. We will gather together at the end of project and present in the final symposium a collective version of the Arctic Cod history, with new findings, ideas and collaborations.
