LECTURE SERIES, PART 1: COBOLT COLLECTIVE
Throughout August and October 2020, we will be hosting an online lecture and talk series featuring artists and activists whose work is exposing the crisis in global capitalism which is putting individuals and societies at risk. Each event will feature a different speaker and will focus on looking at diverse art and activist practices through the lens of art, writing, protest, performance, and technology bringing together artists, scholars, writers, and activists from different geographies, disciplines and contexts to make sense of and tune into the uncharted territory we are living through.
Wednesday 5 August 10-11am
Online via Zoom
Cobolt is a mural collective of four Glasgow based designers - Erin Bradley-Scott, Chelsea Frew, Kat Loudon and Edda Karólína Ævarsdóttir. Aware of the unequal balance of male to female mural artists, we decided to start our own collective in 2019 offering an alternative to the gender imbalance within the UK’s mural scene. With every project we work on, we seek to transform a wall or space into one that exudes positivity, encouragement and/or celebration for the people it is designed to be used by. We are driven by a desire to ensure that the power of art as a means of enhancing wellbeing, and/or communicating an important message, is fully realised in whichever context we are working.
