18 June 10:15 BST
Join us for a Kith and Kin: the importance of being networked, a live online talk by Melanie Keen, Director of Wellcome Collection. She will set the tone of Meandering Networks, Mapping Nations by reflecting on the themes and programme declaration.
“In this exploratory talk, I want to reflect on my role now as connector and positive enabler through the context of my early career and experience of needing and benefitting from kinship.”
11:10am – 12:10pm: Listening with the Body: A workshop in hauntology
Created and led by Ashanti Harris
‘Listening with the Body: A workshop in hauntology’ will guide you through a series of body awareness exercises alongside some thoughts about hauntology.
This audio workshop has been made to accompany you on a journey to a place of your choosing. The journey should begin in your home or an equivalent place where you feel comfortable to move and have enough space to both lie on the floor and stand. You will then be invited to leave this indoor space and take a walk to a place of your choosing.
