Shift and Signal School: Live Recording of Episode #8

Live Recording of Episode #8 of the Shift and Signal Podcast: Restore Humanity

5.30 – 7pm
Green Room, Ampersand Inventions, 4th Floor, Commercial Union House, 39 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle, NE1 6QE 

FREE | Please book here

Shift and Signal is a series of aural explorations of the urban space of Newcastle and Gateshead. It is delivered as a set of podcasts that are created as walks or journeys around both exterior and interior places, and a sequence of events building a participative and embodied collaboration from those who engage with the project.

This live indoor recording is the final part of the series, and invites all those people who have been involved either through downloading and listening, sharing, or coming on the guided walks, or anyone who wants to find out more, to participate in the final event.

The performance will follow a ‘goldfish-bowl’ method, with members of the audience invited to share their thoughts on the topics covered by the podcast series, by joining the host and presenter in the middle by the microphone (there is no obligation to talk! You are welcome to come and be part of the audience).

You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or follow on Soundcloud. All individual episodes will be gathered here. If you want to get in touch, please contact Dr Alex Lockwood by email on

This live recording will be followed by drinks and vegan nibbles for participants to socialize and continue the conversations begun during the live recording.


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.
