“Art, Ecology and the Economy” – Full Exhibition details
Art, Ecology and the Economy’ is a developmental collaboration between two leading organisations involved in the creative arts, operating on either side of Dartmoor. It is initiated by the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World in Haldon Forest, near Exeter, working in collaboration with the Duchy Square Centre for Creativity in the centre of Princetown.
The project takes the form of an exhibition in two parts, displayed simultaneously and four forums. Its aim is to demonstrate how environmentally friendly approaches to manufacture and collaboration can help make the creative industries more profitable. In turn, they will show how profitable creative industries impact on other important regional industries, particularly tourism, by providing products and services that enhance local distinctiveness. Examples of work and case studies focus on the Greater Dartmoor area, but also on other predominantly rural areas in the UK and abroad (incl. Europe and Africa).Some artists (this includes designers and makers of all kinds) were invited to exhibit and others were chosen from an ‘open submission’. We have sought to include work which addresses ecological concerns and which has the potential to be developed into viable and successful ‘green’ businesses.”
