Friends of SPRI/HMS PROTECTOR Artists in Residence Programme

The Friends of SPRI Antarctic Artist in Residence have travelled south with the Royal Navy on board HMS Protector in the Winter or Spring for a 4-week placement during the Antarctic summer season. We have also offered an Arctic placement via a cruise north.

We have now broadened the forms of art we consider for the Artist in Residence Programme.

For the Antarctic summer season in 2023/24 (applications are now closed) we are pleased to announce a musician will join HMS Protector for a placement of around a month as a composer. More details can be found at Musicians in Residence.

We are most grateful to the Royal Navy, and the officers and crew of HMS Protector, for their support of the programme.

Details for future applications will be announced in due course. For any enquiries please contact us.
