Opportunity: Preserving Pasts, Imagining Futures
Encouraging people to get creative and share visions of a changing Scotland in the run-up to COP26.
In the run-up to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, Glasgow, 31st October-12th November 2021 (COP26), the National Galleries of Scotland and National Library of Scotland are inviting visitors to respond creatively to works from the national collections to visualise how Scotland has been and will continue to be impacted by the climate and ecological emergency, unless decisive action is taken.
Teams in both organisations have collaborated to select objects and artworks that depict five landscapes across Scotland. Each represents a key theme of climate change we are experiencing in Scotland as well as globally. These include sea level rise, biodiversity, land use and agriculture, low carbon energy production and transport. All areas selected are already being impacted by a multitude of interwoven climate change factors, affecting communities and environments.
The eyes of the world will turn to Scotland as COP26 comes to Glasgow in November 2021. We are asking visitors to get creative and share their vision of a changing Scotland.
