Imagining the Impossible: Creativity in a time of Crisis

4 portraits of speakers for event

Artist Es Devlin, fashion designer Priya Ahluwalia and musician GAIKA join photographer and filmmaker Alice Aedy to discuss the power of storytelling and creating in a time of climate destruction.

Artist Es Devlin creates large-scale installations that combine light, music and language. She has created some of the most renowned stage sculptures and her work has been displayed in Trafalgar Square, the V&A, Serpentine Gallery and MET Museum.

Priya Ahluwalia is a designer and founder of her namesake brand AHLUWALIA. She draws inspiration from her Indian-Nigerian heritage and crafts her collections from vintage and dead stock materials.

GAIKA is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work encompasses experimental rap, producing, writing, and visual art. His latest release, War Island OST, focuses on London’s cityscape and geopolitical position.

Unfortunately, Alice Aedy is no longer able to speak at this event. She will be replaced by climate justice activist, political candidate and student Daze Aghaji.


Presented in collaboration with earthrise studio, a creative studio communicating the climate crisis.
