Early Warning Signs

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

20a Inverleith Row

The yellow on black sign was initially adopted by Emma Nicolson, Head of Exhibitions at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to be displayed outside the Inverleith House building for the whole of 2020. However, as a result of the disruption caused by the global pandemic, in November 2020 it was agreed to extend the adoption until the end of September 2021.

In June 2021, the yellow on black sign was joined at the Garden by the green on black sign from PEER and Hoxton Trust and the red on white sign from Fermynwoods Contemporary Art - marking the first time three signs have been re-united since the project began at Artsadmin in 2011. Later in the autumn, the plan is for all four signs to make a sustainable pilgrimage through to Glasgow to be re-united with the fourth sign at Impact Arts to mark the 10th anniversary of the Early Warning Signs project during COP26.

Applications are now being sought for a host venue for this sign in 2022. If you would like to follow in the footsteps of Artsadmin and the Converse/Dazed Emerging Artists Award in London, The Hidden Gardens at Tramway in Glasgow, Eastside Projects in Birmingham, Beaconsfield in London, NN Contemporary Art in Northampton, QUAD in Derby, ACCA in Sussex, Solent Showcase in Southampton, CCA Derry~Londonderry and now the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh too, then please see further information about how to 'adopt a sign'.
