Ars Bioarctica residency programme has been running since 2009. It is hosted by the Bioart Society in collaboration with the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the University of Helsinki. Located in Kilpisjärvi, the residency has an emphasis on the subarctic environment and art and science collaboration. It is open for professional artists, scientists, and art & science research teams at all stages of their careers.

The open call for Ars Bioarctica is usually published once a year. We announce the open call on our website and on our social media accounts. You can read more about all things Ars Bioarctica, including previous fellows experiences, on our website.
