Being Human

Close of Play

As COP26 comes to Glasgow, The Glasgow School of Art begins a yearlong series of online public talks, ‘Close Of Play: Climate Emergency and Creative Action’. This series will explore the ways in which creative actions and multi-disciplinary practice can address the climate emergency, sustainability, and climate justice. Each talk is hosted by a different part of GSA.

The second event is on 20 Oct, 1-2.15pm. ‘Being Human’ keynote is an online talk with Professor Ramia Mazé (Professor in Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London) and Professor Lucy Orta (Chair of Art and the Environment, University of the Arts London). The event is hosted by GSA’s First Year Experience and is in association with Climate Emergency Network (University of The Arts London).The chair is Katy West (First Year Experience). First Year Experience (FYE) brings together all of Year 1 students from the five schools at GSA. The theme of the FYE this year is the Anthropocene. How do we explore the impact ‘Being Human’ has on the environment around us?’ For more info and to book free tickets via Eventbrite
