As a start to try to bridge the gap between rural and urban environments we are taking Woollenline, or at least some of the components of it to Bristol as part of a Climate change week event, come and join us to create
Climate Change Conversations @ Create Centre
Saturday 8th March 2014 12.00 – 4.00 pm
Explore climate questions, viewpoints & ideas with related activities for all the family.
Work alongside artists, architects, inventors, scientists and friends to build a cardboard city whilst exploring ideas to embrace climate change. Add your voice to those of the ‘gods’, people we hear everyday with their own particular take on the subject.
