Creating Resilience to Climate Change


 The Barn, Saturday 26 August 2017


7-9pm. Refreshments from 6.30pm

 

Newton Harrison of the Harrison Studio (USA) is an internationally acclaimed artist, who, along with partner Helen Mayer, has championed art & ecology across the globe since the early 1960’s. 

The Barn has invited Newton to visit Aberdeenshire to open a conversation leading to action, involving local agencies and communities in exploring the impacts of climate change on our local environment, centering initially on the catchments of the Dee and Don rivers. Following the Harrisons' methodology, we hope to create a space where all voices can be heard and practical strategies can be formulated and shared. 

This partnership forms the core of the Barn’s Art & Ecology programme for 2017-19, and will engage with environmental agencies, farming, fishing, forestry, government, academia, local communities and, not least, the creative sector. 

They very much hope that you would like to be involved in supporting this project from the outset, and are able to join them for this opening event with Newton Harrison at the Barn.
