Scents of Solastalgia (SoS)

  1. An Eco-Sensory workshop
  2. Tarsh Bates and Alanna Lynch
17 March 2024

Have you noticed that the smells around you have changed? Do you miss the old smells or love the new ones?

Aromas are everywhere and affect us and the life around us in ways that words can’t describe. Changes in the smells of the world around us can have a significant impact on how we feel physically and emotionally but we don’t usually notice unless it smells bad. Construction and climate change cause some of the biggest changes at the moment, but we don’t have a lot of control over these.

Permeable Bodies

  1. Sticking with the Trouble
  2. Workshop | With Mary Maggic (on-site!)
26 November 2023 (on-site!) The Workshop is fully booked out.

The workshop explores the use of “stickiness” as both a practice and discourse for resistance, messiness, and alien knowledging. In a series of exercises that involve scavenging, blind sensing, and cooking with stickiness, participants embrace the entangled glue that binds us to disobedient relations, no matter how hard we try to separate them.

  1. Explore Menopause: It Could Be the Best Time of Your Life!
  2. Workshop | With Nicola Hochkeppel
17 November 2023

With the removal of taboos, education and empowerment, it becomes clear how much good menopause can do for women, our environment and the community. The workshop provides an entertaining explanation of the basic biological phases and symptoms associated with menopause. The question however, of why we still associate femininity with fertility leads directly to political issues also discussed in the workshop.
