Would You Like to Go to the Antarctic? A Genuine Opportunity for Artists and Creatives

We saw this intriguing tweet over the weekend.  It's for real - a residency in the Antarctic!  So how about it, composers?  Or CPP practitioners?

Want to work with the sounds of the Antarctic? Why not pitch your idea to the Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship? 

"The Australian Antarctic Division administers the Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship, enabling those with a non-science focus to experience Antarctica and Australia's activities there, so that they may communicate this unique experience and understanding to other Australians.  Applications are now open for the current round. Applications must be submitted via the online application form, by Monday 30 March 2015 at 4pm AEDST.

"Information for applicants - The program aims to nurture the production of excellent and significant works of art and interpretation by professionals in the creative arts, humanities and social sciences [...]

"Some applications under the Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship may be accepted from citizens of other Antarctic Treaty nations.* These applicants must have the support of their own nation’s Antarctic program, and must be able to demonstrate a capacity to reach a significant audience, preferably including a significant Australian audience."
*Lots of countries, including the UK, are signed up to the Antarctic Treaty.
