While the previous journey took place as the sun showed itself for the last time that year, the final journey will be during the Arctic summer, with sun for most of the day and night. The programme includes presentations of new commissioned works by Justin Bennett, Dmitry Morozow, Signe Lidén & Espen Sommer Eide, and Cecilia Jonsson, and others, as well as lectures, discussions, walks, and performances.


Call for Applicants

The Dark Ecology Journey is for artists, theorists, designers, curators, scientists, writers, makers, and researchers who operate at the intersection of art, science and music, and who are interested in rethinking notions and concepts such as ‘nature’, ‘culture’, ‘ecology’ and ‘society’, and exploring new descriptions of the current 'state of affairs'.

If you are interested in joining this journey, apply by submitting a biography and short motivation about why you would like to take part to darkecology [at] sonicacts [.] com.

Please note that participants will be required to cover their costs for travel, accommodation & catering. If you have any questions about the contribution or any other matters, please do not hesitate to contact us. Apply as soon as possible, there are limited places available.

The application deadline is 18 March 2016.

Take a look at the Dark Ecology Journey 2015.

More information and the entire call can be found on the Dark Ecology website.
