Thursday 3 December
13:00 – 17:00
Radical Renewable Art & Activism Fund
King’s Court, King Street, Glasgow G1 5RB
The Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund (RRAAF) is a new and autonomous alternative funding scheme initiated by artist Ellie Harrison. Once set up, RRAAF will use a wind turbine to generate energy to fund a ‘no strings attached’ grant scheme for art-activist projects in the UK.
This event outside Mono is one of a series of ‘publicity stunts’ around Glasgow in December featuring the RRAAF Mascot, creating awareness for the project and its Kickstarter fundraising campaign. These culminate in the Launch Event at the CCA on Thursday 17 December 2015, 18:30 – 20:00 featuring presentations by Ellie Harrison and Georgy Davis from Community Energy Scotland outlining their plans for making the RRAAF project a reality in the coming years.
The Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund is being developed by artist Ellie Harrison with support from Beaconsfield London & CCA Glasgow. The 2015 launch events take place in London and Glasgow as part of ArtCOP21, The Only Way is Ethics & ArtCOP Scotland. The RRAAF identity is by Neil McGuire.
No booking required.
Organised by Ellie Harrison.
