Leaving everything behind and going on a two-week residency in Lapland. The art and natural science association Bioart Society has launched its open call for Field_Notes, a science field laboratory organized since 2011 at the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the University of Helsinki in the Sapmi region in Lapland. The residency will take place from the 17th of september until the 1st of October and the theme for this year is The North Escaping. « The current climate crisis is transforming our world rapidly, with the most rapid transformations seen in the northern latitude. As the climate changes, it not only alters habitats and livelihoods but affects entities in a much deeper way. The North Escaping captures this mental state, which not only includes fear and anticipation of change, but also the loss of a certain world and the birth of a completely new one », describes the Bioart Society on its website.

The open call is open until Friday 17th March. For more info on how to apply, click here.
