Climate Culture: Making the Anthropocene

agile-ox and Tandem Festival invite you to an evening of ‘Climate Culture: Making the Anthropocene’ at the Turl Street Kitchen on Friday 26th February, 7-10pm.

Join us for an introduction to the Anthropocene and to explore the interaction between artistic expression and some of the current scientific thinking on the environmental impact of humankind.

– Speed intros to the concept of the Anthropocene (what does it even mean?!), with Dr Jamie Lorimer, Dr Ben Hennig and composer Toby Young

– Reflections from artists doing work inspired by the Anthropocene

– An exhibition of ‘Earth Rites’, a body of work by local artists and Nature Effect associates Stuart Turner and Zoe Bicat

– The opportunity to take part in an interactive sound workshop with Nico O’Brien from Tandem/Upcycled Sounds and composer Toby Young

Spaces limited, so book now.

In association with TORCH and the School of Georgraphy & the Environment.

About the map: ‘The information of an interconnected world redrawn in this map was assembled by Globaïa, an organisation which raises awareness concerning the global changes that characterize the Anthropocene. The individual layers that emerge in the image show build up areas and the light pollution of cities (white/yellow over land), roads (green), railway lines (orange) shipping routes (white/blue over sea), pipelines (red), transmission lines (blue) and submarine cables (yellow over sea).’ More here.
