Testing Grounds is presented by the Nordic Alliance of Artists’ Residencies on Climate Action (NAARCA), a collaboration between seven artists’ residencies.

    Episode 1: Introducing NAARCA

    As the climate crisis accelerates, how can artists' residencies be testing grounds for new – and better – ways of living and working? The Nordic Alliance of Artists’ Residencies on Climate Action (NAARCA) is a coalition of seven organisations that are exploring this question together.

    So how did NAARCA come about? What are its goals? And... what is an artists’ residency, anyway?

    Host Katie Revell learns more from Alexia Holt (Cove Park, Scotland), Leena Kela (Saari Residence, Finland), Charlotte Hetherington (Artica Svalbard, Norway) and Jaana Eskola (NAARCA’s Eco Coordinator).
    Credits: Testing Grounds is produced and edited by Katie Revell and includes original music by Loris S. Sarid and artwork by Jagoda Sadowska. With thanks to Alex Marrs and the rest of the NAARCA team.
