THU 19 MAR — 14:00 - 18:00:
FACT’s 2020 Artistic Programme investigates our responsibility to pass on a habitable planet for future generations of humans and non-humans.
As society starts to grasp the magnitude of climate change, the FACT Spring Assembly invites you to join this year-long cultural inquiry. We will explore some of the questions that underpin the exhibition
And Say the Animal Responded? and look at the role and function of art and film for representing, challenging and intervening in the environmental challenges we face.
Speakers include: Professor Claire Parkinson, Co-Director of the Centre for Human Animal Studies at Edge Hill University, Dr Nicola Triscott, CEO of FACT and curator of And Say the Animal Responded?, Professor Susanne Shultz, Evolutionary Ecology and Conservation Research Group at the University of Manchester, artist Kuai Shen Auson, and artist Jack Tan. Following the FACT Spring Assembly will be a live sound performance by exhibiting artist, Ariel Guzik, and an opportunity to see And Say the Animal Responded? for the first time. Exhibition entry is free and all guests will receive a complimentary drink to celebrate the launch of the year of The Living Planet.
