You are invited to submit any coral or coral-related items to an exhibition at Summerhall
As part of her upcoming exhibition ‘Our Unfathomable Depths’ at Summerhall in Edinburgh, artist Jodi Le Bigre would like to display any coral – or coral-related – items that we have in our homes so that we can explore why we have them, what we feel about them, and what it says about our relationships with our environment.
If you are interested in taking part, please submit any coral – or coral-related – item you have in your home, along with a short description of the item(s). Your item(s) will be displayed as part of the exhibition and then returned to you.
A group discussion will also be organised during the exhibition, either in person or online, where we can discuss these items, their histories, and the way that our stories relate to the broader history of coral.

Deadline to contribute: 30th September 2021
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.
