As part of the 10th anniversary celebrations for Early Warning Signs all four signs were brought to Glasgow and installed at various community venues across the city in the run-up to COP26. The red on white sign was installed at Woodlands Community Garden. For Glasgow Open House Arts Festival on Saturday 25 September 2021, Harrison led a special Bike & Talk event around Glasgow to visit the four signs - from Woodlands Community Garden in the West End to Impact Arts in the East End and then to The Bowling Green and The Hidden Gardens in the Southside.

At the end of October 2021, the 10th anniversary celebrations will conclude when all four signs are re-united for first time since the project began at Artsadmin in 2011 at one central location in Glasgow for 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 in London, the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, Castlefield Gallery & Lionel Dobie Project in Manchester, FACT in Liverpool, The Tetley in Leeds, Edinburgh Printmakers, Deveron Projects in Huntly, BOM in Birmingham, MIMA in Middlesbrough, Fermynwoods Contemporary Art in Northamptonshire, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and now Woodlands Community Garden too, then please see further information about how to 'adopt a sign'.

End of Stay Reflections

We were delighted to host Ellie Harrison's Early Warning Sign outside our Community Meeting Room in September and October 2021. It is a brilliant site specific artwork that really speaks to the elements. We had a great response to the sign from our Woodlands regulars, visitors and passers-by, and found it a great way of creating awareness for the extensive programme of events we hosted in the run-up to and during COP26 in Glasgow. We were also pleased to be able to support a local artist who lives just the other side of Great Western Road in North Woodside.
