We are thrilled to launch a new online reading group - Readings for Uncertain Times.

Session One - James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis

Tuesday 4 August, 6.30 - 8pm (via Zoom)

Join the group via Patreon

Join Lumen for an online gathering using James Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis as a stimulus to explore the precarious and deeply entangled nature of life, and consider how or if it might be possible to balance or rebuild the ruptured systems of our planet in the wake of the climate crisis and global pandemic.
The session will be chaired by Lumen and led by Elastic Fiction (Becky Lyon), an artist and researcher exploring nature futures. Lumen and Elastic Fiction will select headline and supporting texts (shared after sign-up) to open up discussion on Lovelock’s work, and explore the ‘reading group’ as a method for working through confusion, cynicism and uncertain futures.

This series is supported by Arts Council England and National Lottery players, and facilitates Lumen's exploration of sustainable online events for artists, at a time when arts oganisations large and small are looking to offer alternative activities for their networks.
