Climate Change and Culture. A Lecture in Images and Icons

Amy Larkin is an internationally acclaimed environmental activist. In collaboration with Theater GROB and The University of Copenhagen, we have invited her to talk on ‘Climate Change' to discuss how we as artists and professionals working with culture and performance/stage art can engage these issues.  

As Amy Larkin says: "I’m here today because we need you. We need the artists of the world to start telling the stories that are too unbearable to tell, too complex to conceive, and too infuriating to ignore. And do it all while creating true art. That’s all I’m asking."  
Amy will share a lot of distressing information, but she will also show how artists have helped lead the world out of other seemingly impossible quagmires. "We can only hope to keep any veneer of civility alive if artists help protect both our culture and our planet."  
Don't miss this unique change to be inspired and enlightened about the most pressing topics of our time: Climate change, migration and how cultural producers can experience, express and alter the course of these world-changing developments.  
We can't wait to welcome her and to hear her talk about these urgently relevant topics.

See you at Theatre GROB the 27th October at 3 o'clock.  
Participation is free of charge. But we are happy if you sign up by sending a mail to  billet@grob.dk
