TIME:
7PM

PRICE:
£5, FREE for Under 26

DESCRIPTION:

Kerry Morrison talks with Jayne Murdoch about the ways in which art can help to illuminate climate issues.

As the political rhetoric heats up ahead of COP26, the international conference due to take place in Glasgow in November, this Tweed Green series offers you the chance to join the conversation.  Three sessions over three weeks bring together speakers with varied experience of environmental activism, and fresh ideas about how we can each make a difference through personal, local or national initiatives.

Session 1: The Role of the Artist

It can be both difficult and daunting to understand the data and follow the science of climate crisis.  So Creative Carbon Scotland has been working with artists to find new ways of helping local communities to see environmental issues from a different perspective, and to decide what they want to change.  Come and hear about some of these imaginative projects.
