I'm delighted to be working with Invisible Dust to facilitate the Under Her Eye Fellowship training weekend, inspired by Margaret Atwood.
Fifteen young women-identifying multidisciplinary PhD researchers from universities throughout the UK, and emerging artists working with environmental themes, will come together for the new ‘Under Her Eye’ Fellowship which seeks to explore and celebrate women's contribution to the climate change challenge.
The Fellowship will provide participants with tools to collaborate across disciplines, leading to artworks and engagement programmes that spark conversations on environmental issues. The bespoke training weekend will include presentations from leading scientists and artists; along with training and practical workshops on project management, communication skills, fundraising, public speaking and social media.
The fellows will use skills gained and new collaborative relationships formed on the fellowship to produce activities for ‘Under Her Eye’, Invisible Dust’s major summit and arts festival taking place on 1st and 2nd June 2018 at the British Library in London.
Participants include students from the Universities of: Edinburgh, Hull, Imperial College London, Leeds, Leicester, Sheffield and York, along with The Cabot Institute at the University of Bristol, the Priestley International Centre for Climate at the University of Leeds, and the White Rose College of Arts and Humanities.
