Tipping Point in partnership with the King’s Cultural Institute, is holding a series of workshops bringing together academics from across King’s College London with artists and other interested parties in the wider community. The aim is to explore urgent issues or challenges which have a bearing on climate change, and are of particular interest to academics, artists, and the broader public.
We are delighted to announce that the first of these workshops, “Representing Uncertainty”, will take place on Tuesday, 2 July 2013 from 5.00 to 9.00 PM, in the Pyramid Room (Department of Geography, K4U.04, King’s Building, 4th Floor) at the Strand campus of King’s College London.

Bruce D. Malamud, Professor of Natural and Environmental Hazards in the Department of Geography, will present his perspective on how the notion of uncertainty can be represented, followed by a response and presentation from a contemporary artist, and wider discussion. The aim is to bring together scientific, artistic and other views on uncertainty in the world around us, particularly in relation to the changing global climate, so that different approaches and viewpoints might influence and learn from each other. This will be a working session, with plenty of opportunity for interaction and group discussion.
Drinks and nibbles will be served! Places are available, but limited, so please let Dr Dorian Hayes know ASAP if you would like to attend by emailing him (firstname.lastname AT kcl.ac.uk).
King’s Cultural Institute aims to create an effective bridge between King’s and the cultural and creative industries. You can find more information about events organised by them here.
Tipping Point organises a range of activities and events to find new ways of increasing the level of engagement of artists with climate change and environmental issues.
