Girl power

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.

Art and Energy’s first public display of solar panel artworks at Mikro Fest in Exeter

Art and Energy has been working with esteemed partners at The University of Exeter, LaserCutz in Honiton, The Fab Lab in Plymouth and The RSA in London to explore the aesthetic versatility of the solar PV technology and develop a new craftivist approach to generating green energy.

On display for the first time anywhere ever, Art and Energy will unveil these new artworks on: Sat 16 March 10am – 4pm at Kaleider studios, 45 Preston Street, Exeter as part of Mikro Fest.
