Art and Energy

Friday, November 4


The ART and ENERGY Collective made the UK’s first solar panel artworks back in 2019 and this year we were the runners up in a global art award for our ‘Window to 2050’ artwork.

We would like to share with you how we did it and also, ask you for your views about how we should use the power produced by these artworks.

We are calling all curious electricians, tinkerers and enthusiasts to join us for a talk and a demo and to share your ideas about what we could do with the power of these artworks.

We are looking for people with technical skills and imagination who would like to collaborate with us and this could be the first step in a creative journey together.

Come along to the Community Climate Centre in Plymouth (it’s the old Waterstones building on the high street) for this free event – drop in any time between 5.30-7pm. Book a free place if you can but drop in at the last minute if that’s easier – we’d love to see you!
