Celebratory Weekend with Cooking Sections, in Skye and online from 6-9 October 2021


To coincide with Cooking Sections project Becoming CLIMAVORE - now open as part of the 2021 Turner Prize in Coventry - we have organised a weekend celebration of On Tidal Zones in Skye.  Join us across a range of events from 6-9 October, including online talk this coming Wednesday exploring coastal commons, a screening of Iorram, walks and discussions, and a final performative meal at the Oyster table at Bayfield.

6 Oct 7pm (online): THE WORLD'S WHO'S OYSTER?

As we now near COP26, and continue to see the effects of climate breakdown all around the world, the challenges posed by climate change globally might seem insurmountable. Join us as we share stories and visions of community ownership and reciprocal relationships with the sea and tidal zone - with people whose work focuses on locally-led alternatives, and on creating networks of change sensitive to the realities of living in local ecosystems. With Cooking Sections (CLIMAVORE), sea bed activist Ailsa McLellan (Our Seas Scotland), Mike Danson and Kathryn Burnett (Scottish Centre for Island Studies).

An outdoor walk with local climate researcher Eilidh Towers, situated around the Scorrybreac shore and discussing how climate change can be observed via the Arctica Islandica clam shell in Skye.

8 Oct, 2pm: RESIDENCY SHARING AT ÒB NAN RÒN

For the last few months, Naoko Mabon has been curator in residence as part of our inaugural On Tidal Zones artist/researcher residencies, planning an amazing series of events on the intertidal zone in Oban. To share some of her research, she is joined by Angus Murray and Caroline Ross for an exploration of the tidal area in Staffin, with the promise of some very specially prepared homemade Dulse soup and lively conversation.

9 Oct, 3.30pm (LOW TIDE): OYSTER TABLE CELEBRATORY LUNCH

In celebration of five years of CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones, a final celebratory meal at the Oyster table itself will look back to reflect, but also look forward to envisage how a new future will look with CLIMAVORE. We’ll wave a fond farewell to the Oyster Table which is being removed from the water this Autumn after being sited in Bayfield for the last four years, playing host to countless educational visits, meals, events and gatherings. Come along for a lively discussion and CLIMAVORE food, with an introduction from Cooking Sections about recent work and plans for the future. 
Book here.

9 Oct, 7.30pm, FILM SCREENING: IORRAM (BOAT SONG)

Join us at ATLAS Arts Office for drinks, informal hang outs and a film screening of Iorram (Boat Song) - a lyrical portrait of the fishing community in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, past and present. Places limitedBook here.

ON TIDAL ZONES ARTIST RESIDENCIES

This year alongside CLIMAVORE we have launched 2 new artist residencies. Thes new series of transdisciplinary residencies with the CLIMAVORE team will expand conversations on regenerative aquacultures and the social and ecological space of the intertidal zone. As Naoko Mabon shares her research in Staffin (above), artist and marine biologist Hayley Wolcott is organising workshop with Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Phort Rìgh as part of her residency - with a visit to Bayfield to learn to identify seaweeds and shells, and further sharings on her residency later in the month.
