An evening to launch and listen to artist Sandra Kennedy’s new audio work ‘Tuil is Gèile’, in collaboration with Làn Thìde (Outer Hebrides Climate Beacon), Adaptation Scotland and the Met Office. This work examines experiences of winter storms as expressed by islanders in the Outer Hebrides.

Presented alongside the collection of stories are the findings from an analysis of historical local weather data and future climate trends, which have enabled Met Office climate scientist Dr James Pope to make projections for how winter storms are likely to change in  future if emissions continue to rise.

During the evening we will learn more about the Met Office analysis and impacts of storms as expressed by local voices, and together we will explore how Islanders can adapt to the effects of climate change to build a hopeful, resilient future for the Islands.

The evening will include refreshments and live music from Màiri Macleod.

If you’d like to attend, please text or call 07920082435 to confirm your place.

P.S. If you are not able to join us in person on the 31st, we will be hosting an online event on the 14th April @ 2pm. Keep an eye on for further details.
