What you’ll do
Join artist Jamie Hale and author Lucy Jones in a creative workshop about the relationship between nature and the mind.
The workshop will start with a conversation about Lucy’s investigations into the scientific evidence base for nature and health. She and Jamie will discuss themes such as the effect of nature on the brain, microorganisms in the soil and their relationship to our minds, and opportunities for people to spend time in restorative natural environments.
The conversation will be followed by a Q&A where you can ask them questions about the ideas raised. Then you’ll have the opportunity to share your own experiences of nature and take part in a creative activity. Using nature poetry, you'll explore how we talk about the natural world, and how changing our relationship with it might affect the way we feel.
This is a relaxed event. Cameras can be on or off as needed. You can move around and make noise at any time. If you need to dip in and out of the session, you can. There will be multiple ways to communicate, ask questions and participate (such as using the chat function if you do not want to use your voice).
If you have any access requests or requirements, for example a transcript of the event, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7611 2222.
This workshop is for 14 to 19 year-olds. It is limited to 16 places and booking is essential. You will be given joining instructions for Zoom in your confirmation email.
