CONNECTIONS AND CONVERSATIONS
THE WORK OF NEWTON HARRISON AND JOHN NEWLING
Thursday 21 March 6.30pm @ The Barn, Banchory

Join Professor Emeritus Anne Douglas and Chris Fremantle, founder of ecoartscotland, leading academics and thinkers in the field of arts and ecology, and other guests to discuss pertinent issues around declining biodiversity and climate change and to consider how artists and others respond to our ever-changing world.The event will be anchored around the work of two internationally renowned figures of arts and ecology; California-based artist Newton Harrison and British artist John Newling.

This will be a very special event where individuals can have an intimate experience with thought-provoking works and explore through discussion, different layers of references and questions that stimulate longer contemplation.
