Moving Out – It’s an Emergency

To mark the arrival in Glasgow of COP 26, Wraptheworld and Surge present a special Moving Out Symposium to explore the response of artists to the Climate Emergency.

This edition of the symposium will posit questions such as how have the arts been utilised by both professional and amateur alike to influence the conversation? How has commercial art been influenced by this emergency in both practice, form and technology? Where is the optimism and where is the pessimism in contemporary art today, and how can artists offer solutions overlooked by other industries?
The symposium will also give time to reflect on some of the myriad cultural events presented throughout Glasgow as part of, tangentially to and in opposition to COP 26.
Save the Date: The symposium will take place on Wednesday 10th November between 10am-1pm.
It will occur simultaneously in-person at our premises in Glasgow, as well as online for those who cannot attend the venue.
There will be presentations from Scottish and international artists as well as workshops and events both online and in-person.
