Urgent Matters III

Urgent Matters III: soil, poetry and care, brings together creative, philosophical, ethical, poetic and political concerns in relation to soil. We are delighted to invite Maria Puig de la Bellacasa and Dimitris Papadopoulos to share their work on these themes, in conversation with the Soil Ecologies poetry group, and a selection of performances from Katherine McMahon, Ama Josephine Budge and Helena Hunter.

This event will be chaired by Shumaisa Khan and Katherine Mcmahon.

This is the third in a series of talks and workshops addressing urgent material, social and environmental challenges through making and thinking together.

If you would like to share any soil/compost related writings at this event please email hari@nomad.org.uk, or arrive early to register for open mic!
