There are two optional free workshops taking place on Saturday morning.

  1. Walkshop // Workshop A one-day practice-led workshop by Leah Fusco, Mireille Fauchon and Gareth Proskourine-Barnett.
    The walk provides the starting point from which to investigate, it is a strategy from which to
    interact with the landscape, providing the opportunity to challenge the way histories and
    narratives are constructed, recorded and retold. This one-day collaborative workshop
    (conducted via walking) will trace Edinburgh’s historical past, present and future, exploring
    the potential of fiction as a method from which to reveal a sites secrets.
  2. Visualising Invisible Oceanic Landscapes: A workshop proposal to map information and data collected from submarine canyons led by Sarah Langford
     The workshop involves a short presentation, followed by problem solving and drawing activities in an attempt to visualise these oceanic wild places. By creating these visualisations and new representations I hope researchers, educators, and students will be better equipped to start to solve some of the issues that face our Oceans and the research undertaken by the Ocean and Earth Science department.

Please sign up for these workshops on arrival. Numbers may be limited.
