KIN will be taking over the Arnolfini for a long weekend with a multi-room extravaganza of music, conversations, games, skill-sharing and theatrical explorations, with activist meet-ups, live art and wandering provocateurs. Each of the six rooms has a full programme, and the spaces have been uniquely designed with participation and connection in mind. Please note that capacities are limited for each room, so please arrive early to your chosen sessions to guarantee entry.

Three humans reveal their own personal journeys, thinking and experiences around the themes of ‘re-wilding’. They reveal how this concept can apply to allowing ecosystems or parcels of land to return to some kind of uncultivated state and how us, animals, can tap into and explore the wild state/soul within us. It is a fertile territory.

Mac Macartney comes to KIN having undertaken some wonderful journeys and experiences, including time spent with indigenous Native American peoples and through his time establishing the wild and experiential zone of Embercombe in Devon. His beautiful and poetic new book (see book launch: The Children’s Fire) invites us to remember and recall the ancient sleeping beauty existing in the dormant wild heart of the British Isles.
Is being more idle a wildly creative and ecological act? Can we unshackle ourselves from the hyper consumerist speed we live without slipping into retro-primativism? Tales, fables and myths are played with as we go for a deeper, wilder sense of being.
