Ahoy! Three-week north Atlantic voyage project seeks recordist

The Norfolk-based photography and arts organisation Utter Nonsense, which is based in an old fishing warehouse in Great Yarmouth, has teamed up with Original Errant and The Excelsior Trust to run a three-week residential project onboard a Lowestoft fishing smack, the Excelsior, sailing from Orkney, to the Faroe Islands and Shetland. The voyage will take place between 23rd May to 11th June 2024 and there’s a position for a sound designer up for grabs.

The North Atlantic Islands Residency provides established artists and young innovators the opportunity to explore the emotional dynamics of being at sea, personal disciplines, fieldwork study, knowledge exchange, plus working towards a collaborative project, exhibition and publication for 2025.


Life onboard the Excelsior is fully funded. Participants must self fund and arrange travel to and from the Residency, plus all costs while ashore, but participants will make a £200 donation to The Excelsior Trust before taking part in the Residency.

The deadline for applications for artists is Sunday 11 February 2024, and Sunday 3 March 2024 for the young innovators category.
