U.S. Antarctic Program, New Investigators workshop 21 22 August 2006 Researchers Interacting with Artists/ Writers How can artists and writers work best with researchers? Artists/Writers often make direct contact with scientists in the course of doing research for their projects Artists/Writers may request to observe or record your work in the field or on station.

Artists/Writers are occasionally embedded as part of a research team. Researchers can work with an artist or writer to have a merit reviewed artists/writers project included as part of their broader impacts. Artists/Writers may request to be a member of a research team.
