Scottish Youth Theatre
Phone Call to the World: Interactive Exhibition
Tue 2 November — Sat 13 November 2021
Calling from Glasgow
Phone Call to the World is one of 17 global projects commissioned by the British Council that explores climate change and environmental crises through art, science and digital technology.
Groups of young people from three continents are engaging with climate change issues that impact them at a local level, coming together to consider the wider global climate challenge. Using the simple holding framework of Phone Call to the World, young people from Scotland, South Africa, Occupied Palestinian Territory, India and England are creating digital performance work that will inform, question, confront and make demands of its multiple audiences to make a difference to one of the most pressing issues of our time.
Phone Call to the World Interactive Exhibition narrates the journey of this project – traversing each of the intersectional localities and lenses that the participating organisations bring. The work contained bridges the auditory and the visual, the interactive and the participatory, but forever acts as testimony: asserting how young people encounter the world they live in and how they then demand climate justice. It acts as a space for witnessing and transition, where the magnitude of global extinction is met at a local and urgent level. Tune into their calls to the future. Connect with their plans for change. Plot your own journey through new interfaces. Leave your own phone call to the world.
Thursday 11th November
As part of the exhibition’s late opening on Thursday 11th November, there will be a special broadcast of a new piece of audio performance created by young artists from across the Scottish Borders. We
Know We Don’t Know – a collaboration between Borders Youth Theatre and Scottish Youth Theatre – is the result of creative exploration around climate change in the Scottish Borders, analysing power, privilege, complacency and community. The piece will be broadcast into the exhibition space at 8pm.
All films contained within the space will be shown with subtitles.
There will be a durational audio piece playing through the exhibition space at intervals throughout the day (played aloud).
