Ellie

Ellie Harrison Ellie is an artist and activist based in Glasgow. She is the founder and co-ordinator of the national Bring Back British Rail campaign. For the last few years she has been wrestling with the inherent contradiction between the continual and infinite ‘growth’ demanded by capitalism and the ‘sustainability’ necessary to prevent climate change. In 2010, she became the first individual artist to publish an Environmental Policy on her website. After breaching its transportation section ‘for love or money’ on several occasions, in 2016 she took the extreme step of not travelling in any vehicles (other than her bike) for a whole year, as part of her ‘controversial’ project The Glasgow Effect.
