Making or Breaking Places
Thu 8th February 6.30pm
Journey Lines will bring together discussion around path making and place making, to consider tourism and access along our coast lines. Discussing how we consider the role of tourism in making (or breaking) places, Zeiske will give an illustrated talk about her long-distance 700 mile walk Slow Coast 500 commissioned by Art Walk Projects. In conversation with anthropologist Tim Ingold, who will talk about his ideas of the Line, they will discuss socio-ecological approaches to anthropology, drawing connections with walking, weaving, storytelling and writing, and consider the impacts on the environment and community for path and place-making. Chaired by Ben Twist (Director, Creative Carbon Scotland), the event will also bring together representatives from different coastal path locations, as well as tourism and place making strategies.
Fungi Paper Making
with Johanna Koen
Sat 10th February 1-3pm
Join Myceliart on an upcoming workshop to learn how to make paper out of bracket fungi.
The session will start with a short guided walk through Lochend Park where we’ll discover fungi and first signs of spring. Subsequently, we will settle down at the picnic tables, where we will demonstrate the process of making paper from bracket fungi.
Continuing our editorial partnership with MAP Magazine, we have co-commissioned writers Dr Isabel Pérez-Ramos, Dr Alycia Pirmohamed, Dr Maria Sledmere who are developing new writing in response to VESSEL
