CULTIVATE is a regional leadership programme for Creative Practitioners and Local Communities to collaboratively explore new ways of embedding creativity at the core of grassroots collective action for climate justice, across the Tay region. Read more about the programme’s ambition and progress in this blog.
On Saturday 19 March (10am-4pm), Zoë will be hosting a one-day exhibition showcasing a community vision of what Tayport could look like in 2030, including the brilliant ideas and illustrations from 175 local pupils. Zoë has been collaborating with our Community Partner, People Learn About Nature in Tayport (PLANT), throughout their journey to create memories of the future worth fighting for.
Tayport in 2030 is a one-day exhibition, showcasing community ideas of what Tayport could look like in 2030, which were collectively and creatively developed at the Pop-Up Tomorrow visioning event before being illustrated by Zoë Swann. The exhibition also includes an audio tour of these visions for a better future in Tayport, interviews from the Tayport Climate Festival, and works from Tayport Primary School pupils.
This is also an invitation for visitors to contribute their own ideas about what they’d like to see happening in Tayport, and to learn more about how they can take part in collectively imagine a sustainable future for their town.
The exhibition will take place in the Sea Eagle Hall at The Larick Centre, on Saturday 19 March from 10am-4pm, and from 12-1pm there will be an opportunity to hear more about the work exhibited and how to get involved, over a cuppa and light bites.
The event is free and open to all, no booking required!
