TESTING GROUNDS Podcast Series
As the climate crisis accelerates, how can artists’ residencies be testing grounds for new – and better – ways of living and working?
A new, 8-part podcast series brings together artists, researchers and activists from across the Nordic region and Scotland to explore this question.
Episode 3: Skaftfell Art Center – The Tensions of Environmental and Cultural Sustainability for Artists and Institutions – Testing Grounds
Each episode in the series looks at the crisis through the lens of one artists’ residency. In the second episode, we travel deep into the Arctic Circle, to Longyearbyen – home of Artica Svalbard – to hear a conversation between an architect and an anthropologist about how climate change is affecting people’s relationship with their built environment.
TESTING GROUNDS is produced and edited by Katie Revell and includes original music by Loris S. Sarid and artwork by Jagoda Sadowska.
New episodes available on the last Friday of each month. Listen here or search for “Testing Grounds” in your favourite podcast app.
Captioned versions of the episodes are available on Cove Park’s YouTube channel.
