Leading pioneer of the eco-art movement Newton Harrison visits the Dee
Internationally acclaimed artist Newton Harrison visited the Dee and Don in August to open an ecological arts project for the twin catchment areas.
Woodend Barn invited Newton to visit Aberdeenshire to open a conversation involving scientists, agencies and communities in exploring the impacts of climate change on our local environment. Newton and members of his team from the Centre for the Study of the Force Majeure visited Deeside and met with the many environmental, scientific, academic, community and creative agencies who are already engaged with this critical issue.
The project will form the core of the Barn’s arts & ecology programme over the new three years. Updates on the programme will be posted in the Learning section of the Barn’s website.
Along with his wife Helen Mayer, Newton has been a leading figure in global arts & ecology since the 1960’s.
