Glasgow’s Green: Art and Urban Ecology

Join Creative Carbon Scotland and Glasgow Arts on 14th March 2015 for a day of free artist-led workshops and activities exploring how the arts can contribute to a more environmental sustainability city. Workshop themes will include food, textiles, urban ecologies, public space, architecture, circular economy and manufacturing.

Everything I Bought and How It Made Me Feel
Wednesday 18th March at 9pm
Camden People’s Theatre, London
Harry’s got a problem. Maybe you do too. He keeps buying things to feel better, but they just make him more miserable. So he started keeping a diary…
For a full year, Harry logged every transaction he made in painstaking public detail, charting his utter failure to come to a live-able compromise with consumerism. Now he’s sharing what he’s learned in a new stage show that dissects shopping until it all falls apart, asking just why we buy what we do. And is there any way to do it better? And how does all this really make us feel?
“Sublime, hilarious, joyous, painful, sweaty and moving, by turns. With astute analysis, Giles has captured in a carrier bag of till receipts the story of our lives: shopping, and how the hell we survive it” – Lucy Neal, Co-Founder, London International Festival of Theatre, on the scratch performance at New Theatre Institute of Latvia, Sept 2014
Sunday 22nd March at 2.30pm
