The Nordic Alliance of Artists’ Residencies on Climate Action,NAARCA, co-devised and co-led by Cove Park (Scotland) and Saari Residence (Finland), aims to build a long-term bridge between Scotland and the Nordic countries around the most pressing global issue of our time. The collaboration is founded upon the geological, climatological, historical, and linguistic similarities that unite both regions, and is the starting point for a permanent, expansive and holistic network of radical cooperation.

The Nordic Alliance of Artists’ Residencies on Climate Action brings together Cove Park (Scotland) and Saari Residence (Finland), Artica Svalbard (Norway), Art Hub Copenhagen (Denmark), Baltic Art Center (Sweden), and Skaftfell – Center for Visual Art (Iceland) to collaborate on research, institutional change and public education around climate action. The first assembly of the alliance is taking place at Cove Park from 1-3 November, and will lay the ground for the future collaborations, projects, commissions, residencies, and events. More information will follow.

NAARCA’s initial three-year programme is generously supported by Kone Foundation and Nordic Culture Fund.
