Radical Sharing

Doors 20.00, start 20.30, entrance free

Our bodies, our houses, our land, our space – we humans don’t always like to share. Author Bette Adriaanse talks with science fiction theorist Alan N. Shapiro, and virtual guests Brian Eno and Aqui Thami, about how we share the world with each other. This evening explores the choices that can be made to share time and resources with others in radical ways. The  Radical Sharing talk is a travelling event, collecting viewpoints on sharing, from the guests as well as the audience, which will eventually result in a project around sharing.
