Expedition Air is the consumer facing brand of carbon upcycling technologies (CUT). Expedition Air offers the service of material integration into consumer facing products. So far, Expedition Air has been able to garner progress in both product development and artist collaboration.
Expedition Air believes that art is an efficient and effective way of mobilizing action for some of the world’s most complex issues. Climate change being one of the world’s most pressing problems, art can create an emotional connection that prompts climate action.
Expedition Air’s goal with the artist in residence program is to demonstrate that CUT’s material can be used in multitudes of commercially viable use cases and that low impact materials can be used without changing supply chains drastically. The work the artist creates will raise the profile of the CCUS industry and Expedition Air.
Expedition Air will offer sponsorship in the form of CUT material (up to a dollar value of $2,500 USD), technical assistance, and business development support. The artist will have access to the showcase space at the Alberta Carbon Conversion Technology Centre (ACCTC) for an exhibition. Expedition Air will offer a trip to Calgary for the artist.
Expedition Air will draw upon its existing networks to assist the artist to make connections with local peers and provide introductions to arts events and organizations. The company will provide support in connecting the artist with the arts community in Alberta as well as with art organizations. Expedition Air will also provide support in securing grant funding for the artist.
