This month, we’re speaking with artists and curators who make the city their workshop, lab and playground.

Join us for a talk about experimenting in public, making space for creativity, and finding the new frontiers for festival design / festival programming.

Surroundings offers a fresh look at our relationship with space, the environment and each other. When we are in harmony with our surroundings we can be at peace with ourselves. Hosted by Triple R’s Lauren Taylor and Simon Winkler, Surroundings is a series of monthly talks with individuals whose work and imaginations provide a new blueprint for cities and communities. Guests will describe the new frontiers of environmental design, surveillance and the possibilities of collaboration with artificial intelligence. These talks explore why now more than ever it’s critical not to take our surroundings for granted.
