Here is amazing opportunity to spend time at sea with scientists at work. And there is a stipend included so you can stock up on meclizine.
Sitka is continuing a unique partnership with Oregon State University that allows for a visual artist, writer or musician to spend two weeks on an oceanic research vessel. Artists at Sea will interact with and create work alongside a scientific team gathering data on the dynamics of mesozooplankton food webs at different depths and during different seasonal currents off of the Oregon and California coast.
We are seeking applications from visual artists, writers and musicians to join the next research trip in February. Applicants whose work directly explores themes of ocean ecology and has the potential to help inform, engage and impact a wide audience in current environmental issues will be prioritized. The application deadline is Nov 15, for the Feb. 28-Mar. 13, 2022 cruise. There is an additional (optional) two-week residency at Sitka from Mar. 13- Mar. 28, 2022 for participating artists to reflect.
