About this event

Glasgow-based artist Ellie Harrison sparked a fast-and-furious debate about class, capitalism, art, education and much more, when details of her year-long project The Glasgow Effect went viral in January. Twelve months later, having slashed her own carbon footprint for transport to zero, she will talk about the sustainability of this 'sustainable lifestyle', the relationship between art and activism and the various local projects and campaigns she has been investing her time and energy in to help make Glasgow a more equal, connected and sustainable city. Followed by a Q&A chaired by Peter McCaughey. The event is free and open to all. It will take place at an accessible venue in Glasgow, which will be confirmed once we assess demand.
