This exhibition is a series of international photographic projects made by artists Anna Bokström and Nina Bacos to explore culture leading up to climate change and future planetary well-being.

The work is made in collaboration with people and organisations in rural communities in Sweden, and Italy. The exhibition will be accompanied by talks given by representatives from local community groups and by daily climate conversations during the first two weeks of the show (after this they will be organised, according to demand).

The conversations will follow the structure and patterns laid out by The Scottish Communities Climate Action Network climate facilitation and the International Transition movement. They aim to facilitate a space to speak about the crisis and what one as an individual may want to do to make a transition from the current trajectory possible but also to identify community interest in starting or working within existing transition practice in Dunoon and Cowal.

The artists are collaborating with Bullwood Nature Trail, Grow Food Dunoon and individuals in Dunoon. Throughout the exhibition there will be talks by local community activists and representatives of the local collaborators as well as some talks on community cooperative development. The artists can also by request participate in other talks and seminars.

Commissioned by Cultural Documents, made in collaboration with Bergkvara Kulturmagasin and Casa Pleiadi and with funding from Creative Scotland
