My Arctic Circle 2019 Arts & Sciences Expedition Residency, Svalbard Norway

For this once-in-a-lifetime artist's residency, I'll spend nearly 3 weeks on the tall ship, Antigua, sailing Svalbard Archipelago, Norway, only 10-degrees from the North Pole. In addition to having to pay to participate in the residency, I’ll need to raise funds for travel, special arctic ice boots and art supplies.

I am committed to pay for the Expedition Residency fees and book the Ottawa to Svalbard flights by March so am launching my Kickstarter immediately!! My goal is CA$7,500. If I don’t reach this goal, I will receive nothing.

I've created a list of Donation Pledge and Thank You Gift (rewards) levels focused on adding my art to your collection. My Thank You Gifts are inspired by Arctic Circle experience whether created during or post residency. Learn more at:  https://sandrahawkinsarcticexpeditionjourney.wordpress.com/blog

What is the Arts & Sciences Expedition?

This unique artist residency is a program of The Arctic Circle and has been sending artist to the Arctic Circle since 2009. Visit The Arctic Circle's website for more details. http://www.thearcticcircle.org

An artist residency is typically located outside of the participant’s everyday distractions.

Why is this important at this time?

I believe my art contributes to climate change discussions individually and across organizational structures. Ocean levels are rising due to melting arctic ice impacting global coastline habitations. This residency is important to my art because it offers collaborative strategies to deal with the uncertainties of climate change. As an artist, I want my art to challenge socio-political perceptions at the same time as evoking intimate resonance around the uncertainty, loss, memory and identity.
