Welcome to The Ark!!

You have signed up for a unique, once in a lifetime opportunity.

We at The Ark, have taken time and effort to make The Ark as comfortable as possible for your stay.

Please remember The Ark is part - scientific experiment and part – live art project, so a sense of humour, open mindedness and willingness to trust and try new things is necessary.

Here are some guidelines to help make The Ark a safe and relaxing space for all:

All phones and laptops should be handed into the welcome table when you arrive, so all participants can switch off from their busy lives during their time here.

Please wear your coloured badge pins as part of your own uniform, from wake up to shut down unless instructed otherwise. These are part of an ongoing experiment which will be conducted during the week.

Please arrive on time to all activities including meal times. If there are changes to the schedule they will be announced in advance.

Please bear with us if we don't have all your favourite food and drink options available.

You will get the most of The Ark if you can come with a positive willingness to participate in all areas of The Ark, including the ones you don't like or are not sure about.

You may not feel comfortable all of the time but all will be revealed by the end of the week. We look forward to your arrival.
