This Is Happening in Grasmere

Next Sunday, at 10:30am. At the Wordsworth Museum.

In an era of ecological emergency, why do we need art?

Humans have had a long history of inaccurate and destructive relations with non-humans, a 10,000-year disaster in the making that has culminated in global warming and mass extinction.
Timothy Morton, ecological critic and Professor at Rice University, Texas, and author of the groundbreaking Ecology without Nature, will explore how art recognises this but can also help, in a direct experiential way, to reawaken the caring bond between humans and non-humans.
