On Thursday, I have the privilege of speaking briefly at the opening event for Tipping Point. The questions on the agenda for the evening are:
Where’s the silver lining?
Can we re-imagine the nature of art and the culture of our relationships in the crisis of climate change?
And here’s what it’s all about:
Following short and sharp provocations and reflections on that topic and question ( 5-10 mins each) from scientist Anne Henderson-Sellers and artist Lucas Ihlein, Dick Robertson from TippingPoint will facilitate a different kind of extended conversation, ( from 6pm-10pm) using Open Space, in which the audience decides what should be discussed.
What follows is a night of vibrant and creative conversation that leaves the participants engaged, connected and with an action plan. Eating and drinking is encouraged through-out!
It should be an interesting event. I encourage folks to follow the link above to find out more about Anne Henderson-Sellers – her ideas on that site are compelling and intellectually challenging – particularly the concept of “environmental triage” – in which decisions will have to be made on which emergencies to act on as a priority, and which will have to be left until later (or never). Juicy stuff…
