July’s session will take place on Monday 14th July. The session will focus on making the predictions for the machine in response to the data you collected in the forest and the scientific data being collected from the weather station. The session will be an informal look at how we can bring together science, predictions, fortune telling, poetry and folklore to make predictions about our future. The session will look creatively and collaboratively at how we can make these predictions and is not reliant on writing.
Rachel is preparing some resources to share with the group including poetry, films and images based on other people’s visions of the future, and how changes in weather and the seasons have been reflected upon by writers throughout history. If you have any examples that you would like to bring along from your favourite futuristic utopian or apocalyptic film, poetry about seasons or environmental change or everyday sayings, then we would love to have your input and hope that you can join us for the session.
Please do book your place again via eventbrite and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the next session –
The workshop will be taking place in the same venue that the first session was held in back in May – LUA Project Space, Edward Barnsley Building, which is next to the college and also home to Cope Auditorium & the School of the Arts.
