Realising that all living nature (and not just humans) uses signs and makes meanings, and that many biologists had recognised this, was one of the most exciting discoveries of my life.

In Other Tongues

creating metaphysics, embodying language: a conference and creative summit June 7-9, 2017

intimate geographies, ecologies of conversation: a residential short course June 10-14, 2017

 

#othertongues | @artdotearth

art.earth has a deserved reputation for curating special conference gatherings and other knowledge-sharing events. Our event this June, ‘In Other Tongues’ is no exception with its two distinct parts: an international gathering featuring artists, writers and thinkers from across the UK and well beyond and a five-day residential short course led by poet Alyson Hallett and writer-illustrator Mat Osmond, with special guest Alice Oswald.

Join us at the beautiful Dartington Hall this June for a transformative three days of international thought and action. Stay on for the in-depth experience of the residential short course.

Two things that excite me about In Other Tongues are the inclusion of both critical intellectual inquiry alongside artistic expression in pursuit of both the troubling and celebrating of non-human communication. Likewise is doing this work in a beautiful setting with access to the river and the land, in a part of the country that I’m drawn to for its spirit and the eco-centred ethic of the local population.

I’m also getting involved because of my positive experience at the Language, Literature & the Sublime conference last year. Your willingness to program and support our crazy idea for the all-night grief ceremony, and the enthusiastic response we received made me feel like this was a venue and a population who were open and supportive of non-traditional conference programming and working with the land there in a way that was not simply using it as a backdrop, but an integral personality within the proceedings.

The gap that our modern, Western culture has created between human and animal can often feel unbridgeable. Often, but not always. I’m curious about encounters and experiences that seem to bridge or narrow the gap. In Other Tongues feels like a wonderful opportunity to gather with people who are exploring similar territory, who are bridge-builders and gap-narrowers. The programme looks amazing and I’m very much looking forward to taking part!

First Friday, July 7 2017

July 7, 2017, 1:00pm - July 7, 2017, 9:30am

First Fridays are a time to gather and share - food, ideas, art, gossip. First Fridays is entirely informal: a bring-something-to-share lunch followed usually by some kind of artist presentation. This month will be a different format in deference to impending summer break (we don't meet in August) and just to celebrate summer. We'll gather at Aller Park (see below) and head out for an informal picnic. Please bear this in mind when choosing what to bring as we're likely to have limited access to plates, etc. Our guest artist is Raj Patel will talk about his project Being with Trees and Making with Wood. He says his talk is 'an invitation to explore my process of being and making through time with the land'. To find directions to Aller Park at Dartington go to artdotearth.org/first-friday/ ————— artdotearth.org/first-friday/
