6-8pm / Clore Learning Studio / Free, but please book place in advance.
Join our Philosopher in Residence Ayisha de Lanerolle to entertain ideas across our seaside environment and it’s relationship to how we feel, in advance of our summer exhibition, Seaside: Photographed. This major exhibition will examine the relationship between photographers, photography and the British seaside from the 1850s to the present. It is Turner Contemporary’s first ever photography exhibition.
Philosophical thinking lies at the heart of our thoughts, feelings, understandings and actions, but we rarely take the time to reflect on or review this foundational thinking. In this unique setting participants get the opportunity to philosophise anew, taking into account different events and experiences, experimenting with new perspectives on old ideas/thoughts and developing new thinking.
Participants are not required or expected to know anything about philosophy and no reading or preparation is necessary. Just bring an open mind and the willingness to follow some simple rules that fuel the dynamic of the practice. The language is plain, free of jargon and technical language.
Please note, we may spend some time on the beach during this session, so please dress appropriately and do let us know of any access issues this may bring up for you so we can plan accordingly.
This event is delivered in collaboration with The Kent and Medway NHS Recovery and Wellbeing College. The college offers educational courses to support mental, physical and emotional wellbeing in shared learning environments in the community.
