Green Tease: To See, Know, and Act – Creativity, Climate Change and Community

Green Tease: To See, Know, and Act – Creativity, Climate Change and Community

Working in collaboration with Creative Carbon Scotland, An Talla Solais, as part of their summer exhibition, Murmur – Artists Reflect on Climate Change, are hosting a Green Tease event in Ullapool on the 19th August from 2 – 5pm at the Macphail Centre.

Green Tease is an ongoing informal events programme, working across Scotland, to connect creative practitioners, cultural organisations, community groups, environmental organisations, sustainability researchers and experts, planners and policy makers. In short, everyone is welcome!

The Ullapool Green Tease is an opportunity to learn more about ATS’s summer exhibition and programme, it includes presentations by:

  • Exhibition curator Jonathan Baxter
  • Exhibiting artist Sarah Gittins who will share her experiences of a research residency looking at low impact fishing practices in the area
  • Anna Reid and Lindy Young from Deveron Projects speaking about The Town is the Garden initiative
  • Topher Dawson, local environmentalist and pioneer of sustainable living, addressing the relationship between climate change and community resilience.

As well as the three short presentations there will be plenty of opportunity to contribute to the discussion. We’ll be exploring Stephen Sterling’s provocation that ‘we need to “see” differently, if we are to know and act differently’. What this means for Ullapool and the wider region will be at the heart of our exploration. You may have other questions. If so, Green Tease is the place for you.

Note: as part of Green Tease participants are encouraged to visit the Murmur exhibition prior to the event. ATS staff and/or an exhibiting artist will be on hand to talk to you about the exhibition on the morning of 19th August.

Tea, cake and seaweed provided!
