Part of the Being Human Festival 2021

Join us for an exhibition of the work created by our Local Women of the World project participants. We’ll be showcasing a variety of art forms – including film, music, poetry, design, digital gaming, and craft.

Local Women of the World at COP26 is a collective project involving women from diverse and marginalised backgrounds coming together to offer their own individual and unique creative perspectives on the climate emergency. 

Working in conjunction with the climate change educator and communicator Zarina Ahmad and the Women’s Environment Network www.wen.org.uk/2010/03/08/women-change-makers/, students from The Dear Green Bothy are acting as individual mentors for around a dozen women who have proposed and developed new creative artworks and projects that communicate fresh understandings and representations of the climate crisis. 

Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
