The Bioart Society hosts currently two regular residency programmes: Ars Bioarctica residency programme and biannual Field_Notes field camp.
Bioart Society is the motor behind Ars Bioarctica which is a long term art&science initiative with a focus on the sub-arctic environment. It was started in autumn 2008 together with the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station of the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Helsinki. Ars Bioarctica fosters projects between artists and scientists to develop new kind of scientific and artistic thinking and through this participate and contribute to the discussion on the relation of humankind and nature. It is located in Kilpisjärvi, the most Northern part of Finland.
The residency takes place in the facilities of the Kilpisjärvi Biological Station. It provides the residents with a combined living and working environment, a basic laboratory, internet connection and sauna.
