…community members of Dunbar joined me at Dunbar Harbour on Tuesday night to hear discuss how I’m planning to make two #LitterCUBE sculptures at the harbour, using discarded, washed up plastic drinks bottles and net ends commonly found in the harbour and along the local beaches. I shared how I want to make the sculptures to highlight the plastic leaking into the sea and the value of this plastic that’s being wasted.
We had a wonderful and exciting exchange of ideas, followed by great suggestions of how to link into the towns many environmental and arts activities . The upshot is we have begun a great supportive net-work, as strong as the net I will be sewing together to make a #LitterCUBE from.
Residents…… teachers……. arts organisers……. the harbour trustees…….. artists……. marine biologist…… parents and a business manager at the meeting wonderfully offered support and suggested that I aim to stage the event in June, to link into Dunbar Civic week and North Light Arts Sea Change exhibition.
June 10th-23rd : proposed dates for making the#LitterCUBES in Dunbar . More detail about events to be added as soon as I am clear about the funding situation. Anyone can help by collecting materials for the #LitterCUBES which will be stored at the Harbour. Please get in touch if you can help.
Thanks to the Dunbar Harbour Trust (and Quentin Dimmer, the Harbour Master) for hosting the event and North Light Arts for helping with promoting the evening event.

We would like to get involved here at Dunbar Primary School. I run the Senior Eco Group, with 20 children from P4-7. Happy to help collect litter and to get involved in any way we can. Please get in touch.

Thanks for getting in touch Aileen, that would be wonderful of you to do some litter collecting for me. The two main materials I will be using in Dunbar are plastic drinks bottles you find on every beach and the net end pieces you find particularly on and around the harbour. It would be great to talk through opportunities of working with you specifically when I’ll be working in Dunbar between 11-23rd June. I will email . Great to have such a positive response from the Dunbar Community! Julia
