Events help unearth Theories of the Earth

Some great events are coming up to enable you to get up to speed on some of the latest theories behind Theories of the Earth, the exhibition at GroundWork Gallery in Lynn.

Don’t miss out on a wonderful gathering of scientists and artists for a study day on Friday, November 30, led by Professor Colin Waters, former principal geologist, British Geological Survey.

And if you have ever wondered what exactly is the Anthropocene – he is one of the team who is defining it.

And he loves art too, so what could be better than Place, Poetry, Experience, between 2pm and 5pm on Saturday, November 10?

Join Emilie Dufresne’s psychogeography poetry workshop which will include active writing deriving from walks around the town to experience the environment in different ways.

Emilie will also read from her own poetry about place, time, experience and memory.

It’s suitable for new writers and experienced ones. The point is to explore, share ideas, write and talk.

Tickets are £8 (£6) and bookings can be made via mail@groundworkgallery.com

The study day to accompany GroundWork Gallery’s exhibition Theories of the Earth takes place from 10.30am-4.30pm on Friday, November 30, at the wonderful historic Thoresby College, King’s Lynn.

Tickets are £15 (£12), including lunch, also at mail@groundworkgallery.com

Among the many events and talks is a performance-lecture – The Glacier and the Rock – from Luce Choules, whose research draws parallels across arts and geography fieldwork methods and contributes to a wider discussion on instability and environmental change.

Luce monitors erratic performances in the landscape and investigates how the natural environment, with all its fragments, is itself an act – a mobility of material already activated.
