Structures of Community
Group discussion with artist and writer Harun Morrison
5.30 – 7.45pmBook Now
Join us at Brighton CCA for this group discussion with artist and writer Harun Morrison, part of the ongoing research programme Structures of Community.
Environmental Justice Questions, organised and edited by Morrison, is a growing compilation of questions for discussion and debate. Harun has invited a range of people including artworkers, scientists, activists, writers, theorists, architects, growers, natural historians and horticulturalists to propose questions relating to environmental justice.
Taking place between the Waste House and the outdoor quad space at University of Brighton, Grand Parade, the session will invite participants to each select a question for discussion within smaller groups before forming a larger discussion circle. This will be followed by an informal bar as an offer to continue the conversation.
You are invited to join us from 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. This event is free to attend, booking required.
