Reimagining Waste Landscapes: a seminar series

Activity: Other activity typesTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Public lecture/debate/seminar


This seminar series presents the work of six leading artists, researchers and authors who engage with landscapes that are characterised by their diverse relationships to waste materials and waste infrastructure. Each of them investigates how such landscapes are formed, used and represented through varied processes of waste ‘management’ and reimagining the role wasted places and materials can play in the contemporary era.

This series is organised by Jonathan Gardner (Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, School of Art, Edinburgh College of Art) and is part of his research project, Reimagining British Waste Landscapes.

The series and the project are funded by The Leverhulme Trust and Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh).
