Art & Tech Summit: Making art at the end of the world
Nov 23, 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
This autumn’s Art & Tech Summit is is day of films, talks and Q&A informed by Prof. Jem Bendell’s viral essay, Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy; which argues that climate change and social breakdown are now inevitable.
Inspired by the can-do, positive outlook of futurist Solarpunk ideology, we investigate how, using open source, D.I.Y tech, smart clothing and renewable energy, artists and communities could do more than just survive but even thrive in this future dystopia.
Book tickets here (includes vegan lunch and hot drinks in the morning)
