You can see artworks by Chloe Uden and Naomi Wright at the ESI at the University of Exeter in Penryn from Friday 30th August until Friday 11th October.
The artworks are the result of an ongoing creative exchange with post-doc researcher Katie Shanks at the Renewables department at the University of Exeter.
Chloe has been participating in a Dartington School of Social Entrepreneurs Start-up programme over the past year, to help her turn her idea for beautiful green energy generating installations into a reality.
She’ll be showing people her work along with 20 other new social entrepreneurs on the 17th October in Plymouth.
If you’re thinking about setting up your own business with a social purpose, Chloe has a limited number of tickets to the event where you’ll get a chance to see what’s possible when you decide to work towards making the world a better place.
We recently spent a fantastic day at The Big Bang Fair with young people from all across the South West and made a start on 7 new solar panel artworks.
On Friday 12th of July, Chloe, Naomi and Jenny plan to use Ocean Studios Making table in the cafe to do some of the next steps in fabricating the artworks. If you’d like to see us and chat to us about this work, then please pop along between 10am and 3pm.
To be fair, no-one ever told me I couldn’t make solar panel artworks, no-one ever said I couldn’t work in a STEM job and no-one said power-tools are for boys.
But somehow I still felt like power was in the male domain.
We think giving young people the chance to experience their ability to make electricity can give confidence to participate in discussions about our energy future.
