Save the date: Dark Ecology Journey from 26-30 November 2015
After a tremendous first edition last October, we are very happy to announce the next research journey to Northern Norway and Russia at the end of this year. 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. For all of you who couldn’t join us last year or who are inspired by the results and stories: the second edition of the Dark Ecology Journey is scheduled for 26–30 November 2015 and will take the participants to Kirkenes, Nikel, and Murmansk. More information about the programme and how to apply for the journey will follow soon.
