Antarctic artist 2021: Claudia Myatt

Following delays brought about by the Covid pandemic, in November 2021 Claudia Myatt travelled on board the HMS Protector to the Antarctic as the Friends of SPRI Antarctic artist in residence. It was the fulfilment of a lifetime dream to visit, study and experience its wildlife first hand.


The Friends' Artist in Residence travels south with the Royal Navy Ice Patrol Ship HMS Protector for a 4-week placement during the Antarctic summer season (November - March). We are most grateful to the Royal Navy, and the officers and crew of HMS Protector, for their support of the programme.

If you are interested in applying for the next placement in Feb/March 2021, here is the information for the 2020/2021 application process to get you started. Please note that the closing date for applications is 28th October 2020.
