This year's annual event revolves around the concept of "Borders". Borders both as a physical boundary, but also in a personal and mental state. A fun and eventful weekend is promised to all participants, so join the BRYC Spirit!  

 

WHEN AND WHERE?

BRYC's annual event 2017 will be held between 30 November and 3 December in the beautiful locality of Arvidsjaur in Norrbotten County, Sweden. Arvidsjaur is known for being a center for the European car industry, as well as a tourist destination.

The program for BRYC's annual event includes workshops, role playing, lectures and competitions. We will also visit the local army base in Arvidsjaur. During this weekend you will experience Sweden, learn more about yourself, learn more about migration and politics and get to make new friends from all across the Barents Region! Yay for friends, right?!
