Join us at The NewBridge Project : Gateshead and explore the current exhibition Deep Adaptation. Take part in a fermenting workshop, get your own starter seed capsule, and leave a response to questions exploring our relationships to each other and the planet.
Deep Adaptation is an ongoing programme of commissions, talks, screenings, workshops and events exploring how current social, political, civic and economic issues can be understood in relation to climate change. The exhibition features art work by Lucien Anderson and David Lisser, Rhona Foster, Alex Lockwood and Chad McCail.
Dive into the world of fermentation with Ugly Duckling and learn the traditional art of kimchi making in this hands-on workshop. Take home your own probiotic-rich fermenting jar and enjoy a fresh fruit cocktail while you do so.
Artists Lucien Anderson and David Lisser will be manning Last Ditch Attempt, distributing starter seed capsules, and giving advice about seed preservation.
The exhibition also offers a public space for people to respond to, and reflect on ideas around Deep Adaptation, exploring questions of resilience, relinquishment, restoration and ‘response-ability’. These thoughts and conversations have been gathered over the course of the exhibition, producing collaborative and innovative responses to issues surrounding climate change. Come and have your say about how things might be done differently in the future, and contribute to our collective agenda for action for Newcastle and Gateshead.
This event is part of Deep Adaptation. An ongoing programme of commissions, talks, events and workshops looking at how current social, civic and economic issues can be understood in relation to climate change.
