Over several years of research and collaboration, interdisciplinary performance company METIS, led by Zoë Svendsen, have been imagining alternatives to the current global economic order within the context of climate change.
Part documentary film, part live discussion, this virtual event – broadcast as part of the brilliant Change Festival – invites you to explore the power of the imagination to stimulate hope and shift mindsets. Meet the creators behind METIS’ latest work Love Letters to a Liveable Future. Enjoy extracts of the show. And hear from change makers who are already living and breathing the world that Love Letters conjures into being.
The future is on its way – it’s time we started rehearsing for the kind of world we need to build together. So come and exercise your imagination with us as we create new possibilities for an eco-logical future.
Virtual via Zoom. 4:30pm – 5:45pm on Friday 5 November.BOOK YOUR FREE PLACE
