This September Cape Farewell launches its 2008 Arctic expedition.

Musicians including Laurie Anderson, Vanessa Carlton, Jarvis Cocker, Feist, Ryuichi Sakamoto, KT Tunstall and Martha Wainwright, join artist Sophie Calle, comedian Marcus Brigstocke, poet Lemn Sissay, beat-boxer Shlomo, architect Sunand Prasad, composer Jonathan Dove, and playwright Suzan Lori Parks, to make up a 40 strong international team.

Our destination is Disko Bay, west Greenland, where the challenges of climate change leave their strongest mark. Science teams from the National Oceanography Centre and the British Geological Survey embark upon a full programme of work while the creative team will set about turning the facts of climate change into a human story. It is the way we live our lives that has caused climate change and the solution to a potentially devastating reality has become a cultural challenge.

In this Dana Centre event, Cape Farewell director, David Buckland, will talk about the upcoming ambitious expedition, show film clips from the ice strewn 2007 east Greenland voyage on the IMAX screen and introduce the 2008 team. Professor Chris Rapley, director of the Science Museum will open the event and facilitate a Q&A with members of the crew and the audience.
