What would a renewable energy project for Glasgow look like if the design process was led by artists, architects, landscape architects, and urban planners, working in collaboration with engineers?
Over the past ten months, three interdisciplinary design teams have worked together on proposals for a new renewable energy generation site in Port Dundas, Glasgow in association with the internationally acclaimed Land Art Generator Initiative. The teams have included artists Alec Finlay, Dalziel + Scullion and public art agency Pidgin Perfect.
Coincing with an exhibition of the resulting designs at the Lighthouse, you are invited to join Creative Carbon Scotland and partners from Land Art Generator Initiative Glasgow – Chris Fremantle (eco/art/scotland) and Heather Claridge (Glasgow City Council) – for a discussion of the role of creative processes in the development of renewable energy infrastructure in Glasgow.
As part of the ongoing Green Tease series, this event will focus on the potential for collaborative working between cultural and sustainability sectors to affect a wider transition to a more environmentally sustainable Scotland.
You can find out more about the LAGI Glasgow project and partners here.
The event will begin with a viewing of the LAGI Glasgow exhibition in Galleries 4 and 5 of the Lighthouse (from 5:30 – 6pm) followed by a facilitated by a talk and discussion with refreshments provided (6 – 7:30pm).
Please note that the event venue is wheelchair accessible. If you have any access requirements or questions please get in touch with Gemma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Green Tease is an ongoing informal events programme which aims to build connections between creative practices and environmental sustainability. The majority of our Green Tease are free to attend with refreshments provided.
