The Skien of Time Opening Exhibition by Sharon Field, Climate Change and Biodiversity Panel

Exhibition by Sharon Field 22nd of January - 8th of April 2022
Panel Discussion: Saturday 22nd of January 10:30am-12:30pm

Our place on this planet is becoming fragile as the natural climate becomes increasingly helpless in the face of the political and economic and industrial demands that continue to extract from but not give to it. The plants and animals in our environment are undoubtedly tough, but they are helpless against the constant and unrelenting onslaught of humankind which is, for the most part, self-serving. Can our now fragile environment sustain its biodiversity in the face of this constant battering?

Guest speakers:
Sharon Field: Botanical artist
Thierry Corrège: Science and Higher Education Attaché
Brook Clinton: CEO at SEE-Change
