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.
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
In June 2019, Art and Energy CIC worked with over 170 students from schools across the South West of England at The Big Bang Fair in Westpoint arena.
The 7 now completed solar panel artworks inspired by ‘The Big Bang’, will finally be displayed at Ocean Studios at Royal William Yard in Plymouth from 27 Nov to 1 Dec as part of Plymouth’s Illuminate festival.
11th October – Ocean Studios, Royal William Yard, Plymouth
Plymouth Energy Community (PEC) are subsidising an Art and Energy workshop in Plymouth as part of an ongoing project with the PEC Pals to design and make an artwork that will form part of the Illuminate Festival at Royal William Yard in November.
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.
