About The Encampment of Eternal Hope:
Climate House presents The Encampment of Eternal Hope by Walker & Bromwich – coming to The Briggait, Glasgow, for the international climate summit, COP26, 31st October – 10th November. The Encampment is an immersive environment, forming a central hub for creative fringe activities throughout COP26. Amplifying Indigenous voices through workshops and events that bring together artists, academics and activists from Scotland, Colombia and across the world. You are warmly invited to come and engage in meaningful dialogue about the effects of the climate crisis within a playful, dystopian woodland encampment of giant inflatable sculptures.
The Encampment of Eternal Hope is open daily from Sunday 31st October – Wednesday 10th November, 10.30 am – 5.30 pm
Walker & Bromwich:
Glasgow based collaborative duo Zoe Walker and Neil Bromwich are known for their large- scale iconic sculptural works, participatory events and exhibitions that invite audiences to imagine better worlds. At the core of their practice is the exploration of the role art can play as an active agent in society, evolving environments and situations within which people can begin to re-examine the world around them.
La Minga Indígena:
Minga is an Indigenous word, one used long before the Spanish arrived in South America, to refer to an act of communal work, an agreement between neighbors to build something together: a bridge, a road, a government.
Hanna Tuulikki is a British-Finnish artist, composer and performer based in Scotland. Her multi-disciplinary projects investigate the ways in which the body communicates beyond and before words, to tell stories through imitation, vocalisation and gesture. In her work, she often draws on embodied vernacular knowledges, in particular, practices of vocal and gestural mimesis of the more-than-human, to offer alternative approaches to making kin, both with one other, and across multi-species entanglements. Her most recent work engages with vital questions about what it means to live on a damaged planet, proposing contemporary, queer ritual, as a means to process the trauma that comes with ecological awareness.
Pauline and the Matches :
Pauline and the Matches is a theatrical experiment led by a group of artists and musicians. Expanding on notions of desire and consequence found within Henrich Hoffmann’s cautionary tale ‘Pauline and the Matches’ (1845), the on-going project aims to create an allegory for contemporary society and a bigger environmental picture
