Duilich, chan eil seo ri fhaighinn ach sa Bheurla an-dràsta

I’m thrilled and honoured to have been invited to work on this year’s CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones Residency.

As part of this new residency launched by Skye-based ATLAS Arts and CLIMAVORE, I, Oban-based curator, will explore following questions through a practice-led action research in my locale in summer 2021.

How can we collaboratively activate the intertidal zones as a forum for critically thinking about and taking actions towards the climate crisis?”

How can we approach, understand and share the complex ecology, stories, heritage and challenges around the intertidal zones in an inclusive way?”

The research involves regular engagement with intertidal zones in different scales and levels: daily personal interactions; occasional open sessions with guests where anyone can join; and a sharing to wider communities on Skye coinciding with CLIMAVORE’s Oyster Table birthday party 8 – 10 October 2021.

Hopefully, in the end, a group of interest will be loosely formed which leads and generates long-term collaborations and grassroots actions towards climate emergency. If you are interested in the group, please visit Facebook page Activating Oban Intertidal Zones”

See you on intertidal zones!
