Event Description

'Homing in: the aesthetics of sustainability', 


Friday 14 June, Aberystwyth Arts Centre


This one day event, organised by Aberystwyth and Cardiff Universities, in partnership with the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, is part of an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) project investigating the relationship between arts practices, sense-making and sustainability in Wales (




The event draws on the successful format used at the Philosophy Cafe in Cardiff (http://www.philosophycafe.org.uk), and aims to enable dialogues between artists, activists, local people and academics interested in ecology and environment.


The day will consist of a series of showings, panel discussions and café-style conversations exploring how artists might contribute towards the production of sustainable places.



  • The event will commence at 10.00 am in the Aberystwyth Arts Cinema and centre on the work of Jony Easterby, Jane Lloyd Francis, Siriol Joyner, and Simon Whitehead. Panelists include Jane Archer, Matt Jarvis, Richard Downing, Ria Dunckley and Reuben Knutson

  • At 2.30 pm, Dr Chris Groves will run a philosophy cafe in the upstairs bar of the Arts Centre

  • At 6.30 pm, the cinema will screen Gideon Koppel's award winning film Sleep Furiously. The day will end with a discussion between Gideon Koppel, the poet Damien Walford Davies and film theorist Kim Knowles

All welcome.


The event is free but works on a first come, first served basis.
