Arctic Voices

This feature exhibition ran from February 11, 2021–September 6, 2021.

Presented by RBC, Arctic Voices takes visitors into the world’s northernmost biome—a tremendous and fragile region that is deeply connected to the rest of the world. Journey over the tundra and into the Arctic to marvel at landscapes and wildlife, meet the people who call the Arctic home, and discover the impact of climate change on their way of life. 

Developed by Science North, Arctic Voices tells the story of a land that is changing in many ways. Through interactive exhibits, you will learn how strong you are compared to a polar bear, go on a garden tour of the Arctic to see how Arctic plants are used for food and medicine, hear fascinating stories from Indigenous peoples and Arctic researchers, and understand just how great your connection to the Arctic is. 

"Being able to learn in a hands-on way as a family is a priceless opportunity and Arctic Voices at Science World was a wealth of information."

Arctic Visions

Arctic Visions is an artistic extension of our current feature exhibition, Arctic Voices, presented by RBC. This gallery showcases the works of Algonquin Anishinaabe photographer, Pat Kane, and interdisciplinary artist of Inuit ancestry, Mark Igloliorte. While Pat’s photography takes a documentary approach to stories about people, life, and environment in Northern Canada, Mark uses his paintings and drawings to explore language and identity and connect to his Inuit heritage. Both artists create work that celebrates the Arctic—its people, wildlife, and ecology—and brings the stories of Indigenous peoples to the forefront.

Arctic Visions is included in the cost of your admission to Science World.

"We learned about the northernmost biome and its delicate ecosystem. From land, sea and ice, we could see how the animals, people, and environment are all interconnected."
