Symposium: Wild Minds

'Wild Minds' is focused on the ambiguities and co-operations that define our relations with other species. Bringing together filmmakers, theorists, curators and those working directly with other species, the symposium will combine presentations, in-conversation, film, and notes on performance. The various contributors will consider processes by which co-presence, proximity, encounters and (impossible) relations with wild minds are established: from the origins of wild life photographic representation; generational transmission of zoo and conservation; one-to-one animal encounters; image-making solutions of contemporary artists' film and other commercial cinema. Participants will share from their research specialisms, experience, theoretical frameworks and practical references, traversing livelihoods and project-based work.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
