Viewing single post of blog Svalbard // Artist Bursary 2018

By now I’ve entirely abandoned all previous plans for making anything concrete during this residency and just focus on research. I’ve met some great people, each with their own reason to be here, and gained a bunch of new and different perspectives on Arctic climate change and the influence it has on Svalbard’s environment and communities. Feeling of impending doom hangs heavy in the air, but there is also a staggering number of initiatives and very motivated people who come here to make a difference, and there is determination.

People are getting involved.
