The Art and Craft of Saving the World

Last month saw an interesting symposium held in London to explore the relationships between craft and climate change inspired by the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef exhibition at The Hayward (11 June - 17 August 2008). With a keynote discussion from the co-directors of the Institute for Figuring and panel members from the craft council and artists, sculptors and scientists from all over the world, the discussions were lively and lots of interesting points about engaging the public with scientific issues were raised.

For details of this and other events from the Institute for Figuring go to their home page.
