Arts, Culture & Industry: Interconnected responsibility for a low carbon future – An event under the Earth
About the Event
We are pleased to deliver our first physical Bondholder Breakfast event of 2021 in Hull Minster, during its time as host of the Gaia installation as part of the Freedom Festival.
The Gaia installation offers an insightful backdrop for this event, which will bring together arts, culture and industry and explore our shared role in transitioning to a low carbon future. The installation will offer a powerful new perspective on interconnection and why we have a joint responsibility in accelerating and delivering this transition.
At this event, you will hear from Professor Mark Jolly, Director of TransFIRe, who will explore the role of heavy industry in the transition to net zero. Professor Jolly will be joined by a member of his TransFIRe team Dr Anne Velenturf and local business leaders Mikey Martins and Dominic Gibbons who will explore the hopes for new visions and ambitions for the Humber’s cultural sector.
Who should attend? This event is for all regional business, manufacturing and construction leaders and anyone interested in the interconnected role of arts, culture and industry in the region’s journey to net zero.
