Listening beyond our languages
In this talk, creative co-producers Neville Gabie and Philippa Bayley share their project living-language-land, a journey through endangered and minority languages that reveals different ways of relating to land and nature.
Philippa BayleyPhilippa is a research scientist turned public engagement practitioner, research manager and creative producer. Her passion is to create unique spaces that help people think differently, whether one-to-one or in large-scale public events. She has worked across a range of disciplines from neuroscience to cybersecurity, but the heart of her work lies in rethinking our relationship with the earth.
This talk will be held in the building and online! Booking your free ticket here.
The languages we speak shape how we understand the world around us, including our connections to land and nature. But as fast as we’re losing species from our planet, so we’re losing languages that offer diverse ways of seeing. What connections, ideas and wisdom do those languages hold? What powerful strategies for sustainable living might they offer, to help look afresh at our environmental crisis?

Living-Language-Land is a journey through endangered and minority languages that reveal diverse ways of relating to land and nature. We shared 26 remarkable words in the run up to COP26, and in the second phase of the project are keen to explore multisensory and/or immersive possibilities through a discussion with Studio residents and friends. Please join creative co-producers Neville Gabie and Philippa Bayley for an informal, interactive session.
Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 1st July 2022 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the Q and A discussion afterwards.
