When:

  • Thu 1 Nov ’07

Where:

Academy Cinema, 44 Lorne Street, Auckland

Climate change, global warming, oil crisis… why do our eyes glaze over? Where are the big cultural ideas and responses to respond to these challenges, help us comprehend them, and suggest what the future might hold? Should we look to artists, authors and filmmakers rather than governments for advice and inspiration?

Find out more when Ed Gillespie gives a free presentation on ‘Art for Earth’s Sake’, presented by the British Council. Ed is co-founder and Creative Director of Futerra (www.futerra.co.uk), a specialist communications agency who want to “make sustainable development so desirable it becomes normal”.

Currently travelling around the world in eighty ways without flying (www.lowcarbontravel.com), Ed’s talk examines the role of culture in the context of global environmental catastrophe. Where is the art to reflect the challenge of our times?
