Nocturnes: Creatures/Us

Join us at our first Barber Lates event for an evening of creativity, inspiration, conversation, and a social space where everyone is welcome.

Researchers from the University’s Animals Research Network will be encouraging us to explore the relationships between art and animals from a range of multi-disciplinary perspectives. We will be pondering questions such as ‘Is there such a thing as a vegan art work?’, ‘How does art contribute towards extinction?’, and ‘What do cats think about?’

Enjoy a drink – and challenge your thinking at our lightning talks; add your work to our creature-zine in an artist-led workshop, experience a newly commissioned dance performance by Lynnebec and see a curated screening of animal shorts.
