Join us for an afternoon of talks and presentations celebrating creativity in an era of climate emergency, with contributions from many of the artists and collaborators featured in Our Time on Earth.

Hosted by Caroline Till and Kate Franklin and the Barbican, the symposium will unpack the key themes and ideas explored within Our Time on Earth, examining how the creative industries can help us shift from a human-centred to an Earth-centred mindset. Among the crucial questions our expert panels will face: How could our future societies look and feel if we more deeply respect the natural world and design for all species, not just our own?
