This session was streamed as part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Summit 2020 event, held on the 9th and 10th September.
Over the months of June, July and August 2020, Emma Hislop, a multidisciplinary artist from Glasgow and the Foundation’s first-ever Artist in Residence, has had the difficult task to unearth the connections that exist between art and the circular economyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature.. In this episode, we hear what Emma has been working on during her residency and also what is next for her and the artist in residence programme. As a reflective process, she discusses her residency and her experience at the Foundation and beyond.
