Imagining Natural Scotland - information session in Dumfries

Imagining Natural Scotland is a major new interdisciplinary project for the Year of Natural Scotland 2013. Initiated by Creative Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and the University of St Andrews, it will explore the interplay between the natural world and its representation, and promote deep collaboration and knowledge exchange between the creative and scientific sectors.

Significant funds are available for creative project work, leading towards a major international conference in St Andrews on 27 August 2013, and culminating in the publication of a landmark book about the project.

This will be kicking off with a series of public information sessions and Dumfries has made it on to the list: on the 10th April 6-8 at the Cairnsdale Hotel. For more info about the sessions head to the Imagining Natural Scotland page here

Funding will be available on two levels, 
'Small Team Projects
Awards of up to £6000 will be made to small inter-disciplinary teams. Teams must include at least one practitioner from any creative arts background and at least one practitioner with a background in the natural sciences or environmental history who will contribute to and reflect upon the project and collaborative process from a scientific and/or academic perspective.
Larger Team Projects
Awards of up to £10,000 will be made to larger projects, involving a similar team to that detailed above as well as working with a wider group or community (e.g. school group/s, students, local community, professional network, etc).'
