Rebecca Sharp is a writer and interdisciplinary artist whose work encompasses poetry, plays and performance; spoken-word, installation, and print; collaborative and participatory projects – stemming from a core belief in the transformative power of creative practice. In 2020 she received a Literature Matters Award from the Royal Society of Literature to write her poetry pamphlet collection Rough Currency (Tapsalteerie), exploring various entanglements with fossil fuels and the oil economy.
Rebecca has been involved with the research centre since its launch in 2021. Her powerful poetry on oil, climate and imaginative life received second prize in the CEE’s inaugural Art of Energy exhibition, featured centrally in a poetry event held at the Byre Theatre in the lead-up to COP26, and inspired a public workshop on how poetry can empower positive change.
In September 2022, Rebecca began her residency with the Centre for Energy Ethics.
