The Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh was awarded an Outset Transformative Grant earlier this year (which makes its 350th anniversary), which has resulted in work to re-model the Garden’s Inverleith House into Climate House as part of a three-year project, welcoming artists from Scotland and around the world to showcase work encouraging conversations about life on earth, expanding understanding of biodiversity and humankind’s place in the world. The first such exhibition, Florilegium: A gathering of flowers features new and existing works by contemporary artists Lee Mingwei, Annalee Davis, Wendy McMurdo and Lyndsay Mann, who join over forty established botanical illustrators such as Mieko Ishikawa, Dianne Sutherland and Sansanee Deekrajang.

Entry is free, via booked time slots. A pdf is available to download of By Leaves We Survivethe new manifesto for the arts that guides the organisation’s planning.
