For a week during December coinciding with the COP21 Climate Talks in Paris, The Stove will bring issues and comment on climate change into the heart of Dumfries town centre with interactive artworks and public actions, discussions and film as part of a week long exhibition.

Following a water theme, The Stove has invited artists and local groups to explore climate change in Dumfries, from the annual flooding of the Nith to our everyday water-use impacts and changing relationships with our local river-landscape. The exhibition will discuss the activity in Paris and wider afield, as well as looking closer to home as controversial flood prevention schemes for the River Nith are under development.

Participating Artists:

Jen Wilcox, Alan Cameron and Uula Jero – Art of Expedition

Minty Donald and Nick Miller – Guddling About

Kate Foster – Peatland Actions

Jo Hodges and Robbie Coleman

Submerge will run from Monday 7th December to Saturday 12th December, from 10am to 5pm daily with a series of discussion events and evening openings. More details on these available shortly.

This exhibition is part of ArtCOP Scotland and is funded by Creative Scotland Open Fund.
