14 – 17 September 2017
Various locations and times across the weekend.
Join us for a weekend of performance, tastings and film to launch the ATLAS Arts commission, CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones by Cooking Sections.
CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones will consist of an installation, conceived by Cooking Sections, that reacts to the tides on the changing coast of Portree. Every day at low tide, from 14 – 24 September, the installation will be accessible to the public and will function as a dining table, with free tastings of recipes featuring seaweeds, oysters, clams and mussels.
There will be a special preview at low tide on the evening of Thursday 14 September, then over the weekend (15 – 17 September), the installation will be activated by Cooking Sections in collaboration with local chefs, researchers, anthropologists, and residents of the island.
An associated public programme will comprise a series of free talks, film screenings, foraging walks, collaborations with other local venues and tours along the coastline of Skye. Details will be released closer to the event.
Please register your interest in attending the weekend by clicking Book Now above so we have an idea of numbers and can contact you with more information nearer the time.
Skye is a popular destination, therefore it is advisable to book travel and accommodation well in advance. Here are details of how to travel to the Isle of Skye and of accommodation options in Portree to suit a range of budgets.
This project has been supported by Outset Scotland.
Commissioned by ATLAS Arts, CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones looks at forms of eating that address environmental regeneration through the promotion of ingredients that proactively respond to the new ecological challenges of the Scottish waters.
