Friends of SPRI/HMS PROTECTOR Artists in Residence Programme

The Friends of SPRI Antarctic Artist in Residence travels 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 now also offer an Arctic placement via a cruise north.

For the Antarctic summer season in 2023/24 we are pleased to announce an opportunity for a musician to 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.
