In Hunting for Feathers and Landscapes of Change, the pair argue that museums and galleries can be just as helpful as science when considering environmental issues:
“Understanding and improving our relationship with nature demands we not only listen to the scientists, but we look to art and visual culture as well,” said Samuel. “To protect our future, we need to understand our past.”
Festival goers will also be able to watch the films outside Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Museum via pedal-powered screens attached to bikes, tapping into the eco ethos.
Two interactive stalls, Wild Life on the River Kelvin and Find Your Bird!, provide more ways to learn about the issues raised, with suggestions for how we can all be greener going forward.
Anyone unable to attend in person will be able to watch online from Thursday 2nd June, as part of the festival’s Science on the Sofa offering.
