Reception & Research Presentation

The distinctive artistic approaches of filmmakers Margaret Salmon and Ed Webb-Ingalls’ to the Invisible Dust’s commission around the impact of MPAs reflect the complex scientific, environmental, economic and social issues involved and has created two significant bodies of research in themselves. Both artists will discuss the in-depth engagement work they each undertook within the limits of the brief.

There will also be a chance to hear the community voices from the tour. Recorded over the last nine months by creative ethnologist Mairi McFadyen of Local Voices, this has created a ‘chain’ conversation across Scotland. Mairi will be at this event to present her findings and share some of the audio recorded in Arran, Barra, Ullapool, Gairloch, Skye and Helmsdale.

Tickets £5 / £3 concessions
