22nd September 2022 , 2:00 pm – 29th September 2022 , 3:00 pm
Exhibition: Greyfriars Charteris Centre, Edinburgh, EH8 9RR
Please note that the exhibition will not be open on Saturday 24 September due to a closed event.
The Climate Sisters are a group of thirteen women which formed in 2020 during a climate leadership course where, through discussion and collaboration, they each developed creative responses to aspects of climate justice and other sustainability issues they cared about.
Through the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN), the project gained support from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, Care International and Action Aid UK. Additionally, the University of Glasgow provided mentors to help the women to develop and create their ideas, and the University of Edinburgh documented the project in conversation with young people from SCOREscotland through two films; bringing their collective stories into the ‘Learning for a Sustainable Future’ series of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). These collaborations enabled the women to develop their varied ideas, make them a reality and share them widely.
This exhibition offers an opportunity to interact with each of the creative pieces produced by the Climate Sisters which include poetry, music, podcasts, sculptures, paintings, jewellery, filmmaking, fashion and photography.
It is open, free of charge, 10am until 16:00 daily* from 22nd – 29th September at the Greyfriars Charteris Centre, 138 The Pleasance, Edinburgh, EH8 9RR.
*The exhibition will not be open on Saturday 24 September due to a closed event.
