Scientists say that careering away from potential near-term social and environmental collapse requires stopping business as usual – so what can this imply for artists working today?
Where does a new piece of music, a story, a visual artwork, often created in the solitude of one's practice, fit in to worldwide attempts to keep the temperature rise to a (relatively) safe level. These are some of the themes for an evening of conversation with composer, pianist, ClimateKeys founder and Extinction Rebellion arts activist Lola Perrin, who will also convene Peoples Assemblies with the audience for a fully engaged event in which everyone's voice counts.
Doors 6pm, event starts 7pm.
This event accompanies the 2019 Bow Open Show, selected by Carey Young. Bow Arts presents a series of collaborative events exploring how “our current political moment” has pushed the boundaries of expression, both through art and different forms of protest.
