The Arctic Circle

Non-member

Artist and scientist led, The Arctic Circle is an annual expeditionary residency program. The Arctic Circle brings together international artists of all disciplines, scientists, architects, and educators who collectively explore remote and fascinating destinations aboard a sailing vessel.

The Arctic Circle takes place in the international territory of Svalbard, a mountainous Arctic archipelago just 10 degrees from the North Pole. Our vessel, a traditionally rigged Tall Ship, is equipped with work space, common areas and ample room for privacy and creativity.

The program provides the opportunity for artists and innovators to pursue their personal projects on board while exploring collaborations with the expedition’s fellow participants.

The Arctic Circle provides a shared experience for its participants to engage in a myriad of issues relavant to our time and to develop professionally through interdisciplinary collaborations, exhibit opportunities, and public and classroom engagement.
