Over the past ten years Kristine has been fortunate to be invited to participate in local, regional and international conferences, residencies and exhibitions including those at The Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta (Canada), The Leighton Centre in Calgary, Alberta (Canada), Brock University in St. Catharine's Ontario (Canada), Utrecht School for the Arts (Netherlands), The MPLS Center in Minneapolis (USA) and Arctic Sustainability in Arts and Design Network (ASAD) in Lerwick, Shetland (UK). Junction North Gallery is an extension of her artistic practice and research and was created out of an interest in connecting local communities with exciting work being made in art, design and environmental studies.
