After two extraordinary Dark Ecology Journeys in 2014 and 2015, we are excited to announce the third and final journey which will occur from 8–12 June 2016 in Northern Norway and Russia.
While the previous journey took place as the Sun showed itself for the last time that year, this final journey will take place during the Arctic summer, during which the Sun will be up for most of the day and night. The programme includes presentations of new commissioned works by Justin Bennett, Dmitry Morozow, Signe Lidén and Espen Sommer Eide, and Cecila Jonsson
, and others, as well as lectures, discussions, walks, and performances. More names will be announced soon.
Call for Participation
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 in exploring new descriptions of the current ‘state of affairs’.
If you are interested in joining us, or have any questions about participation, please contact us at darkecology[@]sonicacts[.]com
. To apply, send us your bio and a short explanation about why you would like to participate as soon as possible, as there are limited places available. The deadline for applications is 18 March 2016.

Dark Ecology is a three-year art, research and commissioning project, initiated by the Dutch organisation Sonic Acts and Kirkenes-based curator Hilde Methi, in collaboration with Norwegian, Russian and other European partners. Dark Ecology unfolds through research, the creation of new artworks, and a public programme in the zone on both sides of the Russian–Norwegian border. The programme includes lectures, presentations of commissioned artworks, curated local walks, a discursive programme, and concerts.
If Dark Ecology is entirely new to you, this
is the best introduction to the project.
