TALKS & FESTIVALS
1 June 2018
Award-winning climate change charity Invisible Dust is curating a new International Summit and Arts Festival this summer specifically focussed on women and the environment. As huge fans of Margaret Atwood and the utterly absorbing Handmaid’s Tale, we’re excited to hear that the author and activist will be headlining the event with a talk at the British Library.
Margaret Atwood’s works grapple with themes of climate change, science, gender, capitalism and politics. Under Her Eye will see Atwood and a host of other pioneering women (Caroline Lucas of the Green Party, Hakima El Haité, Moroccan Minister for the Environment etc) telling stories, sparking conversations and inspiring change. Book your tickets now for the Summit that forms part of the 2018 Suffrage Centenary program.
The following day the British Library will be hosting a series of free Sensory Family Workshops that are open to all ages in the Library’s Piazza Marquee, and a ticketed evening Microclimate Sensory Banquet exploring the links between food and the environment.
