With air pollution levels in London getting higher, Space to Breathe will ask what collective action can we take to make our cities less congested, cleaner and more energy efficient?
Taking place on the 28th and 29th January at Somerset House, Space to Breathe is a weekend filled with art installations, performances, talks and workshops to highlight the impact of air pollution on our health.
The programme of events includes a virtual reality dreamscape in which a young girl ignites environmental change around the Strand and Aldwych in one of the most polluted corners of London.
Other highlights of the weekend’s programme features: a new sound commission by Wesley Goatley, a display of David Farnham’s award winning works including three 3D printed lungs and ribs of Caroline – a woman who recovered from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and a solar sound system which demonstrates the power of renewables.
This weekend of events is being curated by Cape Farewell and Shrinking Space, in partnership with King’s College London’s Environmental Research Group.
Space to Breathe will take place at Somerset House on the 28th and 29th January from 12pm to 6pm. For a full list of programme details visit: https://www.somersethouse.org.uk/whats-on/space-breathe
