Climate Emergency in Practice – Finding Ways for Individual Artists to Address the Challenge

Fife Contemporary is organising a day event which considers the climate emergency & looks at practical ways artists can address it within their practice

Thursday 3 October 2019, 9.30am to 4pm
Adam Smith Theatre (Beveridge Suite), Kirkcaldy, Fife

A practical day designed to give individual artists knowledge about how arts’ practice relates to the Climate Emergency and empower you to make a difference in the lead up to Scotland’s Climate Week (7-13 Oct). The emphasis will be on information, discussion and working together on devising a useful toolkit. We can contribute positive handprints as well as negative footprints to our environment!

Contributors include:

  • Jonathan Baxter – currently involved in a residency project with Sarah Gittins at Deveron Arts; also involved with Extinction Rebellion.
  • Elizabeth Ogilvie – Fife-based artist with international reputation who has been exploring the subject of ice and the Arctic. Founder of Lateral Lab which works with art & the environment.
  • Mary Michel, one of the two creators of Ostrero, a research & advocacy body to raise awareness about the Circular Economy, and Director of the Incorporation of Goldsmiths in Edinburgh
  • Catriona Patterson, Green Arts Project Officer of Creative Carbon Scotland

Registration will take place between 9.30am and 10am. Tea, coffee and water will be provided – please bring your own packed lunch.
