Egin was a two-week artist residency in response to climate change, curated and hosted by National Theatre Wales in partnership with Natural Resources Wales and with support from the National Trust and Snowdonia National Trust. It was held during July 2019 in Capel Curig, Snowdonia in North Wales.
Egin briought together Welsh and international artists from different artistic disciplines and all at different stages of their careers and connected artists with thinkers, with local communities, the natural environment and Wales’ cultural heritage. Egin took creative experimentation as its starting point, to inform new practice, imagine possible futures, and inspire sustainable approaches to living.
The British Council helped support international artist attendance at the residency and worked with their offices around the world to identify and support international artists to attend.
Running alongside Egin, LAND. MONEY. REBELLION. HOPE. was a series of informal curated discussions about some of the most pressing issues relating to climate change.
