Tue 25 October 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
As part of the Green Tease series, Creative Carbon Scotland is delighted to be joined by Dr Anthony Newton, Institute of Geography and the Lived Environment, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh, and visual artist Ellis O’Connor to share their respective work and research into geological and geomorphological processes and environmental change in the Iceland and the Northern Hemisphere.
During this event we will have the opportunity to hear from Anthony and Ellis about their scientific and artistic approaches to understanding Iceland’s geology and geomorphology and the manifestations of environmental change in its landscape and geography.
Anthony and Ellis will each share short presentations of their work, followed by facilitated discussion of the ways in which artistic and geological/geographical practices could mutually inform one another and wider issues surrounding environmental sustainability.
Discussion will be followed by networking drinks.
The event will appeal to individuals and groups working in areas including:
- Members of the Royal Scottish Geographic Society
- Members of the Green Tease network
- Geological and geographical research
- Climate change
- Art, science collaborations
- Interdisciplinary research
