Ocean Research Expedition
Arctic Norway, 2022
Historically, women and gender diverse individuals have been systematically excluded from participating in political, scientific, and exploration processes.
In response, a group of trailblazing women, non-binary individuals, and two-spirit people came together for the Sea Women's Ocean Research Expedition aboard the MV Vestland Explorer.
Their goal was to study the interlocking themes of gender, ocean sustainability, loss of biodiversity, and climate change in the Arctic. By bringing together traditional knowledge, scientific research, and the arts, the team approached challenges from multiple perspectives, ultimately leading to a deeper understanding of the complex issues they encountered.
