A weekend of art, discussion & action

The climate is changing, why aren't we? Ask this question and more at Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising from Saturday 1 June – Sunday 2 June.

Drawing inspiration from the work of artist Janet Laurence, presented in her survey exhibition Janet Laurence: After Nature, Conversation Starters 2019: Tempertures Rising is set to be a weekend of art, discussion and action as global temperatures rise.

Leave nothing behind and learn how to make your kitchen low-waste with the team from Cornersmith, hear from a group of young people hell-bent on climate justice, save a t-shirt from the pits of fast fashion, or join in lively discussion on how better talk about climate change!
