Deep Material Encounters


Symposium in Clearwell Caves

Friday 15th April 2016

Deep Material Encounters will be held at Clearwell Caves, Forest of Dean, one of the country’s oldest iron ore mines. The symposium brings together researchers and artists from across the arts and sciences to discuss ways that knowledge is developed, and perceptions altered, through encounters with particular materials, in the context of current ecological conditions.

The event will include formal presentations, screening/installation of video/film works and performance. The symposium starts at 2.30pm and runs until 6pm.
