Topographies is a one-day seminar exploring how we make sense of different landscapes, through contemporary art practice and creative geographies. Artists and researchers lead a series of discussions around the remote and the connected, the mapping of invisible and imagined spaces, and how technology is changing our relationship to landscape. Invited speakers are Harriet Hawkins, art writer and professor in GeoHumanities at Royal Holloway, University of London, and John Wylie, professor in Cultural Geography at Exeter University. The seminar includes a lunch event, developed by Vilma Luostarinen in collaboration with Natasha Rosling. The menu will conjure the imaginary spaces of the body and its relationship to the land and sea.

There is also the option to take an artist-devised journey to the seminar on a luxury coach from Swansea, Cardiff and Bristol. Activities en route include onboard entertainment and video screenings. To book for this option please email Alexander Stevenson for further details at:  mail@alexanderstevenson.com
