Join us in celebrating 5 years of CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones – with a lively discussion sharing stories and recipes from the tidal zone, local activism and aquacultural futures, over a specially prepared CLIMAVORE meal at the Oyster Table in Portree.
After five years of meals, workshops, discussions, recipe sharings, and talks we’re saying a fond farewell to the Oyster Table as we grow and find new ways of being CLIMAVORE across the island. Come along for one final celebration at the table, where we will reflect on the last 5 years, and share what the future holds for CLIMAVORE.
About the Oyster Table
Set on the intertidal zone/seal-mara at Bayfield, the CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones Oyster Table explores the environmental impact of intensive salmon aquaculture and reacts to the changing shores of Portree, Isle of Skye. Each day at high tide, the installation works as an underwater multispecies oyster table, inhabited by filter feeder bivalves/dà-shligich and seaweeds/feamainn. At low tide, the installation emerges above the sea and functions like a dining table for humans.
The Oyster Table is activated by ATLAS Arts, CLIMAVORE CIC and Cooking Sections in collaboration with local chefs, residents, politicians and researchers. Over breakfast, lunch, or dinner (according to the tides), performative meals feature a series of CLIMAVORE ingredients.
