Climate Change Activism: Protest Posters Workshops
Ages 12-15yrs / 16yrs+
Scottish Maritime Museum, Harbour Street, Irvine
Saturday 13 November
As COP26 gets underway in Glasgow, the Scottish Maritime Museum on Irvine Harbourside announces two Climate Change Activism: Protest Posters Workshops for young people will run on Saturday 13 November.
The Protest Posters Workshops will give young people the opportunity to reflect on the events of COP26 and think about what they want done to stop climate change.
Participants will be joined by multimedia artist and Sculpture and Environmental Art graduate of the Glasgow School of Art, Marie-Claire Lacey who will share her experiences of protesting and the links to her own art.
After talking about how activism works and the power of protest to create positive change, participants will make their own protest posters and banners.
The Museum, which is located on Harbour Road, will run two workshops – a workshop between 11am – 1pm for those 12 – 15 years and a second workshop between 2pm – 4pm for those aged 16 years and over.
The workshop for 12-15 year olds is free. Tickets for the workshop for those 16 years and over are priced £5.00.
Those attending the workshops can also visit the Museum and take in the current Ocean Posters Against Plastic Pollution touring exhibition, which makes its UK debut at the Scottish Maritime Museum.
The international exhibition features posters which were designed by 17 – 25 year old design students across all five continents to challenge the escalating plastic pollution of our oceans.
All workshop materials are provided. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
