What you’ll do
When Apollo 11 landed in July 1969, the first two people on the moon were able to look back to earth from space. Join us for a weekend of activities, performances and discussion highlighting some of the experiences that impact the health of travellers looking back at their homelands from afar.
You can also drop into the Being Human gallery and discover ‘Refugee Astronaut III’ by Yinka Shonibare. This artwork features a figure in an elaborate spacesuit with a hastily gathered net of possessions. You can reflect on who they are and what has caused their hurried flight.
These events are part of Bloomsbury Festival and you can see the rest of the programme on their website.
