A Question of Scale

December 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

An evening of conversation and debate on artistic responses and approach to global and large scale issues such as climate change.

 

How do artists engage with large scale issues and concepts like environment and climate change?

How can artists influence new ways of looking at the future? How can we create our own futures?

How can artists create new local contexts for global and large-scale issues?

Do we need a new way to talk about climate change?

Are we as artists responsible for creating new ways of seeing the future?

Can localised, personal actions affect change on larger levels/across larger communities?

 

Speakers:

Jo Hodges + Robbie Coleman

Kate Foster + Nadiah Rosli

Jan Hogarth + Sheila Pollock

Minty Donald + Nick Miller

Jen Wilcox

 

For a week during December coinciding with the COP21 Climate Talks in Paris, The Stove will bring issues and comment on climate change into the heart of Dumfries town centre with interactive artworks and public actions, discussions and film as part of a week long exhibition.
