Spillover 2022 will be a day of insightful discussions about creative interventions, innovation and sustainability.
“The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it”
said Neil deGrasse Tyson, the American astrophysicist. It’s a celebrated quote that chimes with one of the dominant themes of the UN’s recent Climate Conference, COP26. Whether it’s fires, floods, or wholesale loss of biodiversity; all of the indicators of the climate emergency are pointing to the fact that it is happening and it’s going to get worse. Fact. We also know, creativity is a key source of growth and productivity for the UK economy.
Join us for our next Spillover edition. A day of insightful discussions and virtual networking with key stakeholders from the creative and cultural industries and Higher Education as we explore the opportunities and challenges of working across traditional boundaries to tackle the Climate Crisis.
Our speakers will reflect on a broad range of contemporary issues; from creative community responses to climate change, to generating older active lives through digital innovation. It is a day set to be full of creative disruptions, innovation and inspiration!
If you are a creative freelancer, climate activist, entrepreneur or simply looking for some insights into the latest thinking in the Creative Economy and Creative Disruptions into the Climate Crisis, then join us for this free online event hosted by The Bridge as part of the iMayflower project.
The online day of creative collisions comprises a series of 30-40 minutes dynamic sessions facilitated by Jo Loosemore, Curator and Content Producer (Mayflower 400 and BBC), with break and spaces for networking.
