The future of water and flooding

Wednesday 29 March 2017, 18.30 (open space) for 19.00 (talks begin)
The Brunswick, 82 North Street, Leeds LS2 7PN

It’s essential to life on our planet but climate change, a growing population and global inequality are creating challenges for how we access, use, and live with water. The United Nations estimates that by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed areas, whilst areas of the UK are having to rethink responses to flooding.

Join us for an evening of talks, thought experiments and curiosities by Artists, Scientists and Makers to explore the future of water and flooding.

Featuring talks from:
Amanda Crossfield: Lead Advisor for Climate Change Adaptation, Yorkshire Water
Simone Kenyon: walking artist and performer
Guy Lymer: Bridge Rectifier

Event organised by Clare Martynski (School of Performance and Cultural Industries)
