Can Science Fiction Save Us?
Thursday 12 April
With predictions of food shortages, overpopulation, extreme weather events and a new home planet it is beginning to sound like earth is part of a science fiction novel. Can science fiction really find a way out of our troubles? We team up with local science fiction magazine Shoreline of Infinity to deliver a science festival special of their monthly science fiction event, Event Horizon. Join us for an evening of poetry, performance and reading followed by a discussion with science fiction authors Paul McAuley, Anne Charnock and others. We pit science against science fiction in an attempt to solve some of the world's sustainability issues and ask how possible are science fiction innovations today?Share
