Bright Edge Deep: peatlands in history, cultural heritage, and climate | Online Exhibition

Opening on Monday 27 September

The Bright Edge Deep team presents an online exhibition inspired by the history, cultural heritage and restoration of peatlands. Through a variety of media – imagery and text, film and sound, poetry readings and lectures – the exhibition examines the scientific basis of peatlands as important ecosystems, and their role in capturing climate records and acting as climate mitigators. Visitors can explore this evolving exhibition through four major themes: Wilderness and Nature; Myths, Legends and the Spiritual; Landscapes of Power and Work; The Future of Peatlands.

Bright Edge Deep is led by a group of art historians, archaeologists and palaeoecologists with a concern for peatland heritage (past), management (present) and restoration (future). They aim to bring together artistic, historical, cultural and scientific representations of peatlands as moderators of climate change to enhance understanding of their role as historic landscapes and ‘wild’ places of cultural and natural value for the future.

Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
