HEDGE: walking, talking, value, geography and social organisation.

What kind of spaces and values organise rural areas? Are they any different from those in urban metropolises?  What are their distinctive characteristics?

Jointly facilitated by Critical Practice Research Cluster and SSW, you are invited to a weekend program of participatory events will explore modes of cultivating and harvesting values with reference to sculptural, social and geographical forms.

We aim to interrogate how these things resonate with significance and how this might be different. HEDGE is part of Critical Practice’s current exploration into VALUE from various and perhaps even contradictory perspectives. Our aim is to explore modes of evaluation and mechanisms of valorisation as situated, localised and embedded. Over the next two years, the research cluster aims to produce a body of publicly disseminated resources concerned with current changes in value.

The weekend will kick off with evening drinks in Huntly on the Friday, then the walks, talks, and other activities will take place throughout the day on Saturday and on Sunday morning at Scottish Sculpture Workshop and the surrounding area. Food will be provided for by SSW on Saturday and Sunday and there is limited accommodation available at SSW.

Notice: please bring appropriate footwear and warm clothing.
