Mona Kastell has won Gold medal at the World Stage Design 2022 Awards in ‘Alternative Design’ for her set design for ‘Glimpsing Air Pockets'(pictured above), a Scottish immersive, multi-sensory dance theatre production bridging stage design with Nature connection to shape sustainable communities and wellbeing.
Creative Scotland funded Mona’s World Stage Design 2022 attendance in Calgary, Canada to exhibit her nominated Ecoscenographic set design and to work alongside international peers, lead ecological workshops, promote Ecostage (an online initiative to promote sustainable performing arts practice) and network to develop ecological design thinking in the international performing arts industry.
Mona included an extra fee as part of her funding application to be donated to a local Scottish woodland to help offset her international flight and encourage local environment regeneration for which she chose Three Hares Community Woodland.
Thank you, Mona, and congratulations!
