Fire and Ice: The Art of Climate Change. Conference
Saturday October 28. 3-6pm.
Increasingly we live in a world which has to cope with changing weather patterns, environmental shocks and disasters.
Whatever the causes, and wherever the effects are felt, our responses and solutions need to be practical ones if human society is to survive. But what are the roles, in any field involved, for the imagination, for creativity, ingenuity? To what extent can we maintain a harmony with nature? Is it helpful for arts, sciences and engineers to interact, and if so, how? Can our future be creatively re-imagined?
