Phoebe is a Geology PhD student and artist living in Aberdeen, studying the biases that geologists bring to documenting faults in mountain building areas.
After moving to Scotland in 2020, she started to take her sketchbook and watercolour palette to the hills and crags to paint the landscape quickly and expressively in between climbing, walking and biking adventures.
At home she likes to explore the relationship between people and landscape, combining detailed adventurers with vivid washed environments.
Recently Phoebe has started to explore writing, with a painting and written piece published by Scottish Mountaineering Press as part of their Creatives campaign.
Sandra Angers-Blondin: Qikiqtaruk, The Vanishing Island
This exhibition is a photographic journey to Qikiqtaruk-Herschel Island, an uninhabited island in the Canadian Arctic. It is a place where caribou, bears and muskoxen roam while whales and seals break the calm surface between slabs of sea ice. A thousand years of use by native Inuvialuit and short bursts of whaling and fur trading activity have left fascinating archaeology.
Like most of the Arctic, Qikiqtaruk is feeling the effects of climate change at an accelerated pace. Its frozen spine is thawing, collapsing, and losing ground to the sea every year, endangering its natural and cultural heritage. For all its fragility, Qikiqtaruk is the kind of place that gives you strength, grounds you. I wanted to create luminous and serene images as a celebration of the plants, animals, landscapes and historic features that, for the time being, make this island so special.

Why is north to the top? Complemented by a useful glossary of cartographical terms, and an interactive map-handling box featuring maps from the National Library’s collections as well as map tools, globes and curiosities the exhibition educates and entertains map readers of all ages
Voluntary Organisation Stands
Shoe Share Malawi
Shoe Share Malawi
An initiative which supports talented athletes in rural Malawi by donating good quality used running shoes. We are organising a shoe collection at the festival on Saturday the 25th November.
These trainers are donated to our partner charity Tafika in Northern Malawi. Tafika run a sports academy which selects promising teenagers to coach up to national level, in addition to being linked with 400 sports teams in Malawi – all of whom need basic sports kit. Teams are based in rural areas where incomes are below $2 a day and cannot purchase kit from traders in their local towns, and many of the recipients are schoolchildren who currently take part in sport barefoot. To date, donations have been successfully facilitated with enormous social benefits to local communities.
