Upcoming Expeditions

Summer 2021

Discovery Islands &
The Great Bear Rain Forest Zone

  • Session 1: June 3rd to June 15th, 2021
  • Session 2: June 20th to July 2nd, 2021
  • Session 3: July 7th to July 19th, 2021

Aboard the traditionally rigged schooner, Jan Van Gent, these small-ship expeditions will host international artist and scientist alumni from The Arctic Circle Residency.

The Discovery Islands and Great Bear Rainforest Zone are home to essential, rare eco-systems and natural-world conservation campaigns. Today this vast wilderness must also struggle to withstand increased destructive resource extraction on an industrial scale and encroaching development.

This is a land of contrasts. It is unceded First Nations territory, and is the home and headquarters for Open Bay Centre for Art & Science.

How to Apply

The inaugural summer 2021 expeditions, Discovery Islands and Great Bear Rain Forest Zone, are available to alumni of The Arctic Circle Residency.
