CULTIVATE Creative Practitioner Zoë Swann invites the Tayport community to look forward to 2030 with a one-day exhibition in The Larick Centre.  

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!

Event accessibility:

  • The space will be set up in a way that there will be plenty of space to move around.
  • You will be able to listen to the audio tour at the event, or access it at your leisure on your own device.
  • There will be headphones with cover for each video station.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available onsite.

CULTIVATE is a pilot project, which engages communities with Climate Justice through creativity and peer-education. We’ll be sharing more insights into each of our first six Creative Practitioner commissions over the coming months.

Creative Dundee is part of Culture Collective, a network of 26 participatory arts projects, shaped by local communities alongside artists and creative organisations. Funded by Scottish Government emergency COVID-19 funds through Creative Scotland.

The Culture Collective programme has the potential to place creative practise right at the heart of a just transition and help shape the future of local cultural life, which will impact massively the way we embrace creativity and culture in Scotland.
