Launch of unpsychology magazine 4: Climate Minds
6.30 – 8pm
The NewBridge Project: Gateshead
unpsychology magazine responds to themes of psychology, soul-making and ecology. The fourth edition – the Climate Minds issue – will be published digitally in spring 2018.
Editors Julia Macintosh and Steve Thorp will launch the magazine and be joined by a number of writers featured in the magazine, who will read from their work on the night.
It will also be an opportunity for discussion looking at the way we think and feel about climate change and what it means for all of us. The aim of the Climate Minds initiative is to encourage conversations and creative responses to the crisis.
Julia Macintosh is a writer, facilitator and learner who encourages others, especially women, to find voice through perseverance and courage. Steve Thorp is a counsellor, coach, writer, psychotherapist and spiritual companion, whose ‘soul-making’ work supports people in their wellbeing, creativity and activism.
This magazine launch is preceded by a Climate Minds workshop (5 – 6.15pm) which you can book for separately. You can find out more about unpsychology magazine and browse previous issues here.
This event is part of the Shift and Signal School, three days of workshops, sharing, live recordings and celebration of our commitment to work together for a flourishing future.
Shift and Signal is a commission by Dr Alex Lockwood, that creates a space in which to imagine how we can go deeper in our adaptations to the crises of the contemporary moment such as social inequality, climate change, and species extinction. The project is an attempt to shift us beyond the usual stuck conversations about how we implement change, and signal towards better ways of living that are now appearing.
The Shift and Signal School 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.
