The Arctic Circle

The Arctic Circle

In 2013, The Arctic Circle program embarks on two high Arctic expedition residencies aboard an ice-class expedition sailing vessel. International artists of all disciplines, architects, scientists and educators alike are invited to apply.

The Arctic Circle 2013 programming takes place in the international territory of Svalbard, a mountainous Arctic archipelago just 10 degrees from the North Pole. Each expedition provides the opportunity for artists and innovators to pursue their personal projects on board while exploring collaborations with the expedition’s fellow participants.

The vessel and home during time in the remote Arctic is a traditionally rigged Barquentine, equipped with workspace, common areas, and ample room for privacy and creativity.

The Arctic Circle accepts applications from international working contemporary artists of all disciplines, architects, innovators, scientists and educators alike. For a full program vsit the website:
