Creative Antarctica Symposium

Learn more about the residency program that initiated Polar Force at the Creative Antarctica Symposium.

Creative Antarctica Symposium

The Creative Antarctica symposium draws its inspiration from a team of researchers investigating the value and impact of artists and writers who have travelled to the far south to express different thematic and artistic concerns. Through a series of presentations and discussions, a comprehensive history and analysis of Antarctic stories, sounds, and images produced by Australian artists and writers will emerge. At a time when Antarctica‘s future is threatened by warming temperatures and geopolitical tensions, the symposium will offer a broader engagement with the opportunities and tensions underpinning the ice continent.


Full Program and bookings will be available at the end of July.
