Event Description

Tate and the Royal Society collaborate to bring together scientists and artists to imagine the social and psychological impacts of climate change.

After a period of interdisciplinary dialogue, notions of adaptation, mitigation, and geo-engineering expand when artists and scientists listen to each other's ideas. This science-art public forum uses the imagination to engage with the future of our planet.

The event begins on Friday 19 March at 18.30 with a screening of drama-documentary The Age of Stupid (2009), which is followed by a discussion.

The symposium programme starts at 10.30 on Saturday 20 March and includes presentations, panel discussions and a public forum following a series of break up sessions where the audience will have the opportunity to formulate propositions and questions to the speakers with the help of a group of facilitators.

The event will be held in collaboration with the Royal Society to coincide with its 350 anniversary involving over 150 UK organisations including Tate Modern. One of the Society’s anniversary aims is to reinvigorate the role of science in society and in our broader culture..
