Arctic artist 2017: Kat Austen

Kat Austen travelled to the Arctic in the summer of 2017. Her work seeks to combine perspectives around dispersal - of ice, culture and identity - into a series of sound, video and sculpture works to further explore engendering empathy for the Arctic region.


Thanks to One Ocean we have been able to offer a two week placement during the Arctic summer season.

The 2018 artist has just been appointed and we will be giving you an update on this shortly. We will be posting an advertisement for the 2019 later in the year.

If you are interested in applying, here is the 2018 application process information to get you started.
