Southbank Centre plays host to Cape Farewell’s SHIFT festival, a stimulating programme of climate-focused events inspired by Cape Farewell’s expeditions to the High Arctic and the rainforests in Peru.
Cape Farewell brings artists, scientists and communicators together to stimulate ideas and the production of art founded in scientific research. Next week Southbank Centre hosts free events engaging artists, architects and scientists in discussion about climate change and showcasing creative work in response to questions of sustainability.
Cape Farewell collaborates with a series of partners including Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges on some inspiring walks, the Expeditions by the Dollis Brook Route, three walks starting out from each of the colleges will visit rarely seen areas of London on foot converging at Southbank Centre at 4pm on Saturday January 30th.
While London College of Fashion's Centre for Sustainable Fashion showcases work from its MA Fashion and the Environment and Fashioning the Future 2009.
