Artist and scientist led, The Arctic Circle is an annual expeditionary residency program, now sailing into our 12th year.
The Arctic Circle brings together international artists of all disciplines, scientists, architects, and educators who collectively explore the high-Arctic Svalbard Archipelago and Arctic Ocean aboard a specially outfitted Barquentine sailing vessel.
The Arctic Circle provides a shared experience for its participants to engage in the myriad issues relevant to our time and to develop professionally through fieldwork and research, interdisciplinary collaborations, exhibit opportunities, and public and classroom engagement.
The Arctic Circle program supports the creation and exhibition of new and pioneering work, and aims to empower the creative individual while fostering the collaborative.
The Arctic Circle accepts applications from international working contemporary artists of all disciplines, architects, scientists, innovators and educators alike.
This application cycle for our 2020 programming opened Nov 15th, 2019. The application deadline for The Arctic Circle 2020 program is January 15th, 2020.
