PEOPLE in Shetland are being invited to share their opinions about climate change as part of an art project which will result in work being displayed in the new library building.
Local artist Christina Inkster will work with arts organisation Gaada to produce risograph prints.
It is supported by the COP26 Conversations fund led by Museum Galleries Scotland.
It offers grants to museums, libraries and historic environment organisations to host small community events which engage with the climate challenge.
It comes as Glasgow prepares to host the global UN COP26 climate conference in November.
The Shetland project in the COP26 Conversations programme is called Da Lay o da Land.
People are asked to answer three questions about climate change, and the results will be used anonymously to form the artwork.
The work will then go on in display in the recently renovated new library building at Hillhead in Lerwick, which is currently preparing to open.
The deadline for submission is 29 October. More information and the questionnaire can be found here.
People can also collect a printed questionnaire from the Shetland Library’s learning centre.
