Skaftfell participates in the Nordic Alliance of Artists’ Residencies on Climate Action

Skaftfell is delighted to announce its participation in a new international research project, which was officially launched last week at Cove Park residency in Scotland and will continue until 2024.

We are very much looking forward to our collaboration with the Nordic Alliance of Artists’ Residencies on Climate Action (NAARCA). The project is co-devised and co-led by Cove Park (Scotland) and Saari Residence (Finland). Further project partners are Arctic Culture Lab (Greenland), Artica Svalbard (Norway), Art Hub Copenhagen (Denmark), and Baltic Art Center (Sweden). Together, we will collaborate on research, art production, institutional change, knowledge exchange and public education around climate action.

The first assembly of the alliance from 1-3 November has laid the ground for our future collaborations, projects, commissions, residencies, and events, and has enabled all involved to take part in the symposium Turbulence / Emergence / Enchantment, which took place at Cove Park from 4-7 November.

NAARCA’s initial three-year programme is generously supported by Kone Foundation and Nordic Culture Fund.
