2pm: A Place for the Eagles – Talk and presentation with Philip Munro from the South of Scotland Golden Eagles Project

Working in partnership with landowners and the conservation community, the South of Scotland Golden Eagles Project aims to protect and increase the numbers of these iconic birds in the Borders and Dumfries and Galloway. Come and meet the team and learn more about this wonderful project.

3pm: 'Living with Big Beasties’ – Talk and presentation by Robin Rigg of the Slovak Wildlife Society

Robin has been working with wolves, bears and lynx in Slovakia since moving there from Dumfries over 20 years ago. Here he talks about his experience of studying these remarkable creatures, and provides insights into the complexities of sharing land with large carnivores.

All talks and related 'interventions' will be taking place at The Stove. Throughout the afternoon there will also be opportunities to participate in Guided Walks with the Orographic Interns, view our exhibition of art and writing relating to the project, and don't miss your chance to book a ride in the Orographic Taxi which will take you to the landscape of your wildest imagining!

4pm: Orographic in Dumfries

Oceanallover will present their latest theatrical performance, taking over the High Street of Dumfries.


5.30-6.30pm: Hot Food will be served at the Stove. A chance to meet and eat, and talk about the day's events, before continuing into the evening.

6.30-7.30: Re-wilding Who We Are -- with author and novelist Margaret Elphinstone

As animals, we are an integral part of life on earth, and yet we behave as if the fate of the earth was not also our fate. How can we recover our connection to the rest of the living world, truly acknowledge what harm we do, and understand how we need to change? Join Margaret Elphinstone in an exploration of what it means to recognise that 'nature' and 'wildness' are not something other, but part of who we are.

7.30-10.00pm: The Orographic After-Party

Following a rich day of performance and presentations, please continue with us into the evening for a programme of spoken word and fine conversation. The Oceanallover in-house band will play a set from recent and imagined shows. BYOB.
