Arts Residencies in Extreme Environments: Lessons from Antarctica
Hobart, Australia
University of Tasmania
  • Graduate Position

This project forms part of the ARC-funded Discovery Project, “Creative Antarctica: Australian Artists and Writers in the Far South.” The candidate will join a large multi-institutional and international team focused on understanding the experiences of professional artists and writers in the Antarctic region and on maximising the outcomes and benefits of residencies offered by national programs, tour operators and other organisations. The PhD project will complement the national focus of the team by examining and comparing the aims, structures and outcomes of Antarctic residency schemes globally, through desk research and interviews with key stakeholders, drawing lessons for other schemes based in extreme or wilderness environments, and/or scientific communities. The particular approach will be developed by the team and the candidate depending on the latter’s background and interests.
