The Arctic Circle Creative Residency

Four million people live in the Arctic Circle. I didn't know that when I applied to go on an international residency to the High Arctic.  At first I thought of The Arctic as a sublime wilderness, unpeopled and home to no-one, without a modern sense of time.  As I have read more, I have learnt it is home to hundreds of indigenous people, the 75% disappearance of ice in the last 50 years, also makes it a profoundly modern landscape. Perhaps it is more of our time, than anywhere else in the world. 

In October 2021 I will travel overland by train to Oslo, Norway and then get a flight to Longyearbyen in Svalbard. Once in Svalbard I will join an international group of artists and scientists; we will sail for 20 days into the High Arctic. During the residency I will transcribe a Private Weather Diary  written  onboard a voyage to the Arctic in 1851 and I will also create my own Private Weather Diary in the Arctic. This is the research and development phase of a new two year project about extreme weather, based in the High Arctic and the Somerset Levels. 

The money I am trying to raise here, is the remaining 25% of costs which I need to pay for my place on the voyage.This research trip  is an unique opportunity to witness this multi-vocal landscape alongside the immediate impact of global warming.   By contributing to this project, you are supporting me to create art  about the accelerating climate and ecological crisis. Very Many Thank You's.
