LiFE Salon: Fruitful Futures
The LiFE ‘Living in Future Ecologies’ research group at Manchester School of Art will host an event to launch the book Fruitful Futures: Imagining Pomona and work from the Opiso City project with students from Manchester School of Art and ArtEz Institute for the Arts, Arnhem, Netherlands. Responses to Pomona Island will be showcased alongside thematic workshops from the New Generation: Design for Living Symposium at 16:30 on Tuesday 18th October at The Pilcrow Pub as part of Design Manchester.
The Book Fruitful Futures: Imagining Pomona is a collaborative research project that presents creative responses from MA students at Manchester School of Art, researchers from the ‘School of Science and the Environment’ and European partners, working alongside the LiFE research group. These critical reflections for the Future City became part of a walk entitled Pomona Encounters for Manchester European City of Science in July. These multi-disciplinary interpretations have been collated into a creative compendium of paradoxical stories in collaboration with the Pomona community and publisher Gaia Project.
