Chapter 6: What to expect
A multi-room extravaganza of conversations, games, skill-sharing and theatrical explorations, with activist meet-ups, live art and wandering provocateurs, including:
FILM: Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival (+ Discussion)
Haraway is a prominent science & technology scholar, feminist, and sci-fi enthusiast who works at building a bridge between science and fiction. Filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova lived with Haraway at her home in California for several weeks, producing a quirky film portrait. Terranova allowed Haraway to speak in her own environment, and the result is a rare, candid, intellectual portrait of a highly original thinker. More here.
TALK: The Earth Protector’s Mission: Polly Higgins in conversation with Ed Gillespie
Polly Higgins is a pioneer; since stepping down from her legal practice, she devotes her time to one client – the Earth. Her work is groundbreaking: she is the lead advocate for and expert on ecocide crime and a generator of change-making Earth protecting laws. At KIN, she’ll be talking to Ed Gillespie, Director at Greenpeace and Co-Founder of Futerra, about aligning the force of law with the force of life, to protect our planet. More here.
PERFORMANCE: Drag Queen Story Time
The aim of Drag Queen Story Time is to capture the imagination and fun of the gender fluidity of childhood, while giving children a glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role model. DQST provides spaces in which kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and allow them to imagine a world in which people can present as they wish. Where dress up is real. They’ll be reading a story for young people/older children (but everyone is welcome!) More here.
TALK & WORKSHOP: Stitchable Changemakes with Sarah Corbett: The Craftivist
Corbett is an author, campaigner and founder of the global Craftivist Collective. Her book “How To Be A Craftivist: the art of gentle protest” is out now. Come along to Sarah’s talk to learn how craft can be used to successfully change laws, policies, hearts and minds. A lucky 20 people will be able to follow up Sarah’s inspiring talk with a practical workshop in Craftivism. More here.
PERFORMANCE: The Waiting Room presents The Closing Ceremony
Shambala Festival favourites, Waiting Room Theatre, who expertly facilitate ‘active waiting’ for the next thing to happen through mischievous and absurdist play will be weaving their unique blend of surrealism creating spontaneous, interactive spectacle. Their large team of players will design and host the final ceremony late on Sunday afternoon.
FILM: The Endless Village: 50 years since Brexit
A satirical sitcom set in an imagined future post-Brexit Britain, or ‘NFKATUK’ – the Nation Formerly Known As The UK. It is 2066, 50 years since Brexit. A devolution revolution has gripped the public consciousness as first countries then counties sought political control on a local level leading to a succession of endless villages, tribes, and small self-sufficient communities.
