To accompany Shezad Dawood‘s Leviathan exhibition at Bluecoat, we’re excited to be hosting two symposia on Wednesday 25 September and Wednesday 2 October bringing together researchers and activists whose work is connected to the themes in Dawood’s project.

Through the lens of migration, activism, biotechnology and more, their discussions will address empathy, as well as the methods and technology we may use in the future in order to adapt to our changing planet.

Empathy In and Out of Species

Professor Alex Balch (University of Liverpool), PhD student Samantha Hook (University of Manchester) and Jennifer Verson (Director of Migrant Artists Mutual Aid), will explore empathy in connection with human migration and our relationship with marine species.
