I’ve previously written of the Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh, and their plans for an exhibition relating to the impact climate change and erosion will have on our lives.

Unfortunately, due to You know What the Gallery had to temporarily close, but……Ta- dah!  There are now plans for it to re-open, and in advance of reopening, the public are again invited to contribute to ‘A People’s Archive of Sinking and Melting’ by Amy Balkin – a growing collection of items contributed by people living in places that may disappear – or already have become uninhabitable – as a result of the physical, political and economic impacts of climate change.

Contributions are sought from anywhere in Scotland. The contributed objects will be part of The Normal exhibition at Talbot Rice and form a record of community-gathered evidence that attempts to make the physical effects of climate change palpable, projecting into a future characterised by loss.

Deadline: Friday 30 April
