Join us at the Barn during Climate Week North East 2019 this March where we are delighted to welcome back the exhibition by Newton Harrison, ‘On The Deep Wealth Of This Nation, Scotland.’

The exhibition comprises a series of maps that develop a climate change vision for Scotland based on the principles of the commons we share in the form of air, soil, forestry and water.  Harrison also proposes a fifth ‘commons of mind’ reflecting the challenge of arriving at commonly agreed action to address the implications of climate change.
