Early Warning Signs

Date: 1 August - 31 December 2016

The red on white sign was adopted by Judith Liddle, Programme Co-ordinator at Edinburgh Printmakers to be displayed outside Edinburgh Printmakers building on Union Street for the whole of 2016.


Early Warning Signs is an ongoing project by British artist Ellie Harrison.

Initiated at Two Degrees festival in 2011, the project aims to allow the four rotating 'climate change' signs she produced for the festival to continue to promote their cause long into the future. Each autumn, four new host venues are invited to 'adopt a sign', agreeing to keep it on public display for the following year.

Applications are now being sought for a host venue for this sign in 2017. If you would like to follow in the footsteps of Artsadmin in London, the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, Castlefield Gallery & Lionel Dobie Project in Manchester, FACT in Liverpool, The Tetley in Leeds and now Edinburgh Printmakers too, then please see further information about how to 'adopt a sign'.
