Report on Mull Artists’ Residency 2015 Published

3rd February 2016

Read the full artists' residency report of our 2015 Artists' Residency in Mull 2015. Written and edited by Stephanie de Roemer and Allison Palenske.

In March 2015, we invited twelve artists of different disciplines to join us for our second Arts & Sustainability Artists’ Residency. Stephanie de Roemer and Allison Palenske have produced a report for us reflecting on the events and outcomes of Mull 2015.

The residency was structured around a weekend-long discussion on the extraordinary and ambitious UN Sustainable Development Goals and aimed to:

  • Provide artists with the space and stimuli to consider how environmental sustainability could drive new ways of working;
  • Collectively develop artists’, Creative Carbon Scotland’s and Comar’s to think about how environmental sustainability can be engaged with in different artistic practices on practical and conceptual levels;
  • Nurture and build a creative community of practice which embeds environmental sustainability at its core.
