LIVE FUTURES: REMAPPING ECOLOGIES - LIVE ON-THE-LINE
As the inevitability of global warming becomes impossible to ignore and human-caused extinctions become widespread, how might the body-centred practices of the deep ecology movement, activist interventions and the work of contemporary artists inform where we go from here?
How can we reinstate different relationships between humans and the network of animals, organisms, weather and environment that we are inextricably connected to? How can we constructively meet the grief, fear, rage and guilt that marks this time? Where might hope lie?
Duration: 2 hours
More artists to be announced.
LIVE FUTURES is a series of curated public conversations that explore the pivotal role of artists in defining the new civic life we are entering, in a sustained period of disruption and change.
The LIVE FUTURES platform celebrates the insight of artists, as thought leaders and critical players in the new social, cultural, and economic paradigms that are being built and renewed in the wake of the pandemic and other global events. Accessible to national and global audiences, LIVE FUTURES will complement the voices of artists with those of specialists from other disciplines in order to dive deeply into the possibilities of our future world.
All LIVE FUTURES events will be live streamed on Vimeo, and embedded on our website. All the events in the LIVE FUTURES Series will be available on demand for 7 days after they air, through our digital experimental art channel LIVE ON-THE-LINE.
