In line with advice from the government, NHS and Public Health England, we have made the decision to cancel our Seedscapes Symposium on Saturday 18 April 2020.
Why do seeds matter? How can artists and scientists work together? How might photographs catalyse change?
Join artists Dornith Doherty, Chrystel Lebas, Heidi Morstang and Liz Orton for a day of presentations and discussions chaired by Seedscapes curator Professor Liz Wells and Head of Programme Dr Pippa Oldfield. You’ll also have the chance to view the exhibition, enjoy drinks and have your book purchases signed by the artists.
Further details and programme to be announced soon.
Booking essential, 50 places available.
Pay as you feel £3, £6, £12 or what you can afford.
With thanks to University of North Texas and University of Plymouth for supporting the curator’s and artists’ travel.
