First Fridays are our regular monthly community gatherings during which we hear about current work from a wide range of artists and those interested in art. They are an opportunity for artists to share work in progress or to hear about interesting projects from some of the many artists and others engaged with creativity and the planet. Since May 2020 our meetings have been online.
On Friday October 1 (13.00 – 14.00 BST/UTC+1) we welcome Prof Jaeweon Cho, Director of the Science Walden (pictured) project at the Ulsan National Institute of Science & Technology in South Korea. The project has been running for more than five years and is exploring not just new engineering projects for the planet but at the fundamentals of how we operate as a society. One of the basic tenets of Science Walden has been the bringing together of artists, engineers and scientists (as well as other thinkers) to create a better world. More information to follow.
