Art during the 2008 Disko Bay Expedition
Our two science crews from the National Oceanography Centre/Scottish Association of Marine Science and British Geological Survey were joined by over thirty artists. Musicians, composers, poets, playwrights, theatre makers, artists, crafts people, architects, engineers, photographers and youth leaders formed a tremendous crew.
During the expedition, we sent back daily blogs, images and videos to communicate this extraordinary journey to a global audience.
We invite artists to this places of natural beauty and artistic inspiration to see first hand the effects of climate change. The invitation to join the expeditions is simple; come, explore, be inspired. Through witnessing the environment, taking part in stimulating discussion and observing and participating in scientific field research, we enable our voyagers to gain a real connection to the subject matter. Our ambition is that this experience will inspire all who journey to somehow respond to the Arctic and create work on their return.
