Moths to a Flame at Illuminate in Plymouth

We’ve had an idea – To make at least 2020 glow in the dark moths with people from the South West which will form part of a solar powered installation that calls our policy makers to implement and support energy system change.

We’ve tested the making process with Plymouth Energy Community and visitors to the Illuminate Festival and are looking forward to a busy new year as we develop the work further.

People with Power – Making solar panel artworks in Plymouth

In October in the run up to Illuminate in Plymouth Art and Energy ran a solar panel artwork making workshop with PEC Pals to learn more about how to get creative with renewable energy.

Here is a gallery of some of the pictures from that workshop and some further information about what were hoping to do in Plymouth
