'Climate Change is the issue of our times. The oceans are warming, glaciers are disappearing and the natural world is in sharp decline.
Donegal County Council Public Art Office/Regional Cultural Centre in partnership with Leonardo/Olats has established a unique and ambitious initiative entitled ‘Lovely Weather’ Art and Climate Change which fundamentally seeks to determine and present the role artists have to play in the Climate Change debate. This is the first and only of its kind in Ireland!
Following an international competition five artists/scientists were selected to work in residence in each of the five electoral areas of County Donegal, to explore on the ground, the effects of climate change and its modifications throughout the county. The brochure above explains each of the projects in more detail.
The Lovely Weather Art and Climate Change Exhibition and Conference will take place at the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal on 12th and 13th November 2010, the exhibition will continue until 22nd January 2011. We have placed the exhibition opening and confrence as part of National Science Week 2010.Please see http://lovelyweatherproject.blogspot.com/ for on-line registration. and www.donegalpublicart.ie for further details.'
