Hayden Lorimer speaks about Futurenature at the Imagining Natural Scotland Conference Conference at the University of St Andrews on 27th August 2013.
The Scottish Government has declared 2013 the ‘Year of Natural Scotland’ led by Scottish Natural Heritage. Creative Scotland is supporting the year along with several other public agencies including Event Scotland and Visit Scotland.
One of Creative Scotland’s key contributions to the year’s activities will be Imagining Natural Scotland. A partnership project between Creative Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and the University of St Andrews, it will explore how ‘Natural Scotland’ has been represented, misrepresented, imagined and re-imagined in literature, visual arts, architecture, film, TV, photography, music, theatre, design, advertising and popular culture – and how these representations inform and shape our understanding of and relationship to the natural world.
