From film to gnomes to photography, there seems to be something about Antarctica that gets the creative juices flowing!

Polar photographer Colin Monteath will explain the tricks of capturing Antarctica through the lens, and Henry Sunderland will describe the tales of his garden gnomes who have endured Antarctic temperatures and been signed by famous personalities including Sir Edmund Hillary, Helen Clark, Richie McCaw and the Dalai Lama.
