From Climate Cultures: Paul Michael Henry, artist and artistic director of UNFIX, writes about UNFIX 2019 in Glasgow (29-31 March).
“… People keep mis-labelling it ‘Unfixed’ or ‘The Unfix’ but it’s UNFIX: a command form. A verb and activity.
A loosening, disburdening, freeing-up. Anti-fatalistic, with the assumption that it doesn’t have to be like this. I experience climate change as a terrible affirmation: we cannot treat each other, ourselves and our surroundings this way. We can’t walk around with these egos functioning the way they do, and live.”

ecoartscotland has commissioned Christiana Bissett to report from the Festival. More to follow.
Just wanted to thank you for the repost! And, of course, I’d love to host more original content from ClimateCultures artists in, from and of Scotland :~) Including from yourself, of course.
