Course blog for American University PERF-570, Fall 2014
The Arctic Circle project is designed as an experimental and exploratory expedition to the Polar Arctic for scientists and multi-disciplinary artists on board of a tall ship.
Most of the artistic residencies that I have knowledge of provide financial support to the participant artists. The Arctic Circle doesn’t: each participant needs to individually fundraise in order to participate. It is odd but understandable taking into account the costs of the expedition.
While all the 24 participants went for traditional fundraising, Daniel Kukla, one of the artist of this last fall expedition raised a successful kickstarter campaign.
I just wanted to share with you this interesting project.
