New version of 3rd Ring Out opens in Edinburgh

One of the winners of the 2010 Tipping Point commissions, 3rd Ring Out (which we blogged here and here) has now opened at the Grassmarket in Edinburgh. Its director Zoë Svendsen says:

We've now got a 'strategy' cell as well as a 'simulation' cell - we've split the use of the two containers into (1) short term crisis in a climate-changed future, under a business -as-usual scenario (which is the same format as last year but now about the Suffolk coastline); and (2) long term alternative futures about the city we are in, generated by ideas gathered from the public and others.

  1. I totally say the container, but did not realize this. A shame they didn't apply for the award for sustainable production.
