Climate Reflections: Human Stories of Hope and Fear
Monday 18th - Friday 22nd November 2019
10am - 5pm, free entry (10am - 1pm on Friday 22nd)
Climate Reflections: Human Stories of Hope & Fear; a five-day multi-media exhibition illuminating the voices of communities from around the world including Bangladesh, Sweden and Scotland and their stories of their changing places.
The exhibition from 18-22 November brings together podcasts created as part of the Scottish Communities Climate Action Network’s Future Voices project, and photography and video from the Environmental Justice Foundation’s No Place to Call Home exhibition, first shown at the National Theatre in London.
The work has been rewoven and recreated to produce an immersive experience in Climate Reflections. Join us at our launch event to hear, see and understand these reflections and responses to the impact of the climate crisis – challenging what we already know, and exploring the impact stories can have. Refreshments, speakers and more to be expected.
The Scottish Communities Climate Action Network is a not for profit membership body of over 200 communities supporting each other to build resilience, and develop skills as they move towards a low carbon future, and adapt to changing climates.
The Environmental Justice Foundation uses investigations and film to uncover environmental and human rights abuses. They work for environmental justice, to protect the natural environment and the people and wildlife that depend upon it, from the cotton fields of Uzbekistan to the coastal waters of West Africa, EJF shines an international spotlight on the environmental and human rights abuses that too often go unnoticed.
Climate Reflections is also supported by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute and their recent research on deconstructing narratives and the power of storytelling.
Also, supported by Aberdeen based Curator Rachel Grant, the audience will hear and see stories of change from around the world, resulting in forced migration and community action. The exhibition provides a chance to reflect and listen, amidst the growing sense of panic and urgency of the climate emergency and we would love to see you there.
