Art-making in the Anthropocene
Published: May 1, 2021
Art-Making in the Anthropocene was a series of eight free online talks/discussions culminating in an online concert, which brought together Scottish and international artists, activists and academics from across disciplines to explore what art-making can be in this time of ecological emergency.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh-funded research workshops were organised by Dr Emily Doolittle, Dr Sarah Hopfinger and Dr Stuart MacRae.
The Art-Making in the Anthropocene Concert originally premiered in April, performed by Katherine Wren and Nordic Viola.
