A SERIES OF READINGS PERFORMED BY LOCAL ACTORS
Exploring the Anthropocene through storytelling, the public is invited to join performers on benches in the English Garden in Battersea Park, to listen to an intimate reading of the selected texts. Scrutinise our flirtatious, sometime amorous and hateful relationship to Nature, through a selection of texts by J.G Ballard, Edouard Glissant, Donna Haraway, Ursula Le Guin to name a few.
The selection of texts will endeavour to demonstrate the complex range of sentiments expressed toward the ‘object’ of Nature, posing the question to see whether these sentiments might have shaped our environment.
Drop-in event for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Paper Poppies Installation – Horniman Museum. Hundreds of delicate handmade paper poppies, made by all children of all ages from Horniman Primary School.
Come along and enjoy our paper poppies installation, learn how to make your own wild paper poppy to take home, or add to surrounding area, guerrilla style
