Festival Explores Better Futures
Young people are playing a key role in an intriguing free weekend of environmental art and ideas in August 2015. The ruins of Morton Castle, and its fabulous surrounding countryside, will provide the spectacular backdrop for the 2015 Environmental Art Festival Scotland. The festival, in the Biosphere, will be an opportunity for artists to help change ideas and influence thinking about how we need to adapt and change in an era of climate change. There will be a strong emphasis on youth with five interns playing a central role in organising and delivering the project, helping build a wider, younger audience to engage with environmental issues. At the heart of the event will be a variety of commissioned artworks plus walks, fireside conversations, food art and other activities to inspire the imagination.
