A+E braids the terms accident and emergency, art and ecology, art and education.
This website shares the emerging story of A+E’s engagement at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh.
With the aim of supporting Edinburgh City Council’s commitment to operate at net zero carbon by 2030, A+E offers an imaginative approach to rethinking the Cathedral in light of the climate and ecological crisis. We ask, how might the Cathedral become an ecological commons for the city and how might that shape a social and ecological art practice?
Co-curated by Jonathan Baxter in conversation with Cathedral staff, A+E works collaboratively with a wide range of partners including artists, peer-educators, environmentalists, and the Cathedral’s eco-congregation group. If you have ideas you’d like to share or if you’d like to get involved we’d love to hear from you.
