In this four-week project, you’ll experiment and make new artwork in response to ideas and techniques shown in our current exhibition Another Minimalism: Art After California Light and Space. You’ll work with artist Jake Bee and your peers to explore the creative potential of colour, light, space and materials using a range of everyday objects including lamps, fans and sound recorders then and use them to make experiential art installations and sculpture. Another Minimalism shows artwork that causes profound shifts in our perception by the simplest and most transparent of means – coloured light gels, mist and the deployment of after images. Others use tinted glass, mirror, resins and highly-coloured metals.
These workshops are social and informal, and include making, discussion and collaborative work to experiment and develop ideas leading to the group exhibition at The Fruitmarket Gallery on Saturday 27 (11am–6pm) and Sunday 28 (12–5pm) February 2016.
Workshops take place at The Fruitmarket Gallery, 45 Market Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1DF every Thursday in February from 6-8pm. We can support your travel costs from Edinburgh and the Lothians. Snacks and refreshments are provided.
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
