6 – 9pm
Join us for the launch of the Deep Adaptation exhibition at The NewBridge Project : Gateshead.
This will be the first opportunity to see new commissions by Lucien Anderson and David Lisser, Rhona Foster, Alex Lockwood and Chad McCail.
Lucien and David will be manning their mobile seed library Last Ditch Attempt, and distributing a number of starter seed capsules, giving advice about seed preservation and seed-sharing networks.
Alex Lockwood, Lauren Healey and Hannah Marsden will be inviting people to contribute to a collaborative response to ideas of deep adaptation, exploring questions of resilience, relinquishment, restoration and ‘response-ability’. These reflections and conversations will be gathered over the course of the exhibition, developing a 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.
