Lilith Archive x CESP: Exploring water through film

21 May
4:00 pm
6:00 pm

Water has many practical and symbolic meanings, across cultures, geographies and identities.

Join Lilith Archive and the Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics for the screening of several relevant short films around water, reflections on its personal and political significance, and a workshop guided by the question, “What does water mean to you?”

The film selections will involve a range of culturally and emotionally diverse ways of relating to, and living with, water. We chose this theme due to Brighton’s proximity to the sea, and increasing water insecurity and flood threats due to the climate crisis. Holding the event on ONCA’s barge is quite fitting as it positions us closely with water.

Workshop activities include time at the beginning for a group introduction, framed with our emotional connections to water. Then a few short film screenings interspersed with group reflections on the films, and a plenary discussion to end.

There will be a short comfort break.

Tickets are by donation, via Brighton Fringe
