Join artists, authors, ecologists, scientists and engineers for an afternoon of conversations and presentations about the history and context of flooding in Exeter, the ecology of flooding, the aesthetics of catastrophe and an exploration of how resilience to flooding has evolved to become the preferred response. This event forms part of a special programme of artist commissions linked to the Exe Riverside Valley Park and has evolved from the flood defence programme currently being delivered by the Environment Agency in Exeter. Conversations Between Floods is hosted by Exeter City Council, the University of Exeter, Environment Agency and Devon Wildlife Trust. Event speakers include: - Author of seminal book ‘Taming the Flood’, Jeremy Purseglove - British artist Tania Kovats who is currently undertaking a commission responding to the River Exe - Professor Katrina Brown, Chair of Social Sciences at the University of Exeter - George Arnison, Flood and Coastal Risk Management, Environment Agency - Photographer Matilda Temperley, whose book Under the Surface captured flooding in the Somerset Levels in 2015 - Artist Anne-Marie Culhane who has been developing a community orchard along the River Exe - Mary-Rose Lane, Biodiversity Specialist, Environment Agency The event will be followed by food provided at 5.30pm.
