CODEX POLARIS established in 2013 - is an book artist group based in Bergen, Norway that creates opportunities and exhibiting platforms for artists who work with books in the Nordic region. Alongside the exhibition program Codex Polaris invites guest co-organisers to work on various networking projects, and writers to contribute with textworks to raise the profile of book arts spanning local and international perspectives. Founders are Sarah Jost, Rita Marhaug, Imi Maufe and Randi Annie Strand.

I have been responsible for setting up Codex Polaris, and being the main organiser for several of its projects including: Norske bøker #1 2014, Posted / Unposted 2017, Bibiotek Nordica 2019, and Codex Nordica at the Codex book fair in California, 2019.
