Invitation

The Dee and Don catchment areas
Creating Resilience to Climate Change

The Barn, Sunday 11 June 2017
7-9pm. Refreshments from 6.30pm

We are delighted to invite you to an evening of discussion in the company of internationally acclaimed artist Newton Harrison of the Harrison Studio (USA), who, along with partner Helen Mayer Harrison, has championed art & ecology across the globe since the late 1960’s.

The Barn has invited Newton Harrison to visit Aberdeenshire to open a conversation leading to action, involving local agencies and communities in exploring the impacts of climate change on our local environment, centering initially on the catchments of the Dee and Don rivers. Following the Harrisons’ methodology, we hope to create a space where all voices can be heard and practical strategies can be formulated and shared.

This partnership forms the core of the Barn’s Art & Ecology programme for 2017-19, and will engage with environmental agencies, farming, fishing, forestry, government, academia, local communities and, not least, the creative sector.

We very much hope that you would like to be involved in supporting this project from the outset, and are able to join us for this opening event with Newton Harrison at the Barn.

Lorraine Grant, Anne Douglas and Mark Hope

Basia Irland is one of the foremost artists working with ecological systems and she is currently writing a series of blogs, Basia Irland | Voices, for National Geographic, each of which speaks for a river, imagining the world from the perspective of an “urban working river,” a river “interconnected with the struggles of my people,” “slow moving and bucolic-looking” river.

So far she has given voice to the Ping River, Chiang Mai, and the Chao Phraya, Bangkok, both in Thailand; the Siem Reap, Cambodia; the Kamo River, Japan; the Eagle River in Colorado and the Yaqui River, Sonora, Mexico.
