Climate change is a systemic set of predicaments, which call on all disciplines, forms of knowledge and bearers of knowledge to work together.

How do we, as Donna Haraway suggests, “stay with the trouble” when doing so requires us to engage in unexpected collaborations and combinations, to make “odd-kin”, to become “with each other or not at all”? What shape is this kinship, where and whom do its lines connect and disconnect, and so what?

Create are delighted to announce ‘Making Odd-Kin’ a one day workshop with artists LennonTaylor, hosted by the KinShip project in Tramore Valley Park, Cork. This workshop will act as an exchange of thoughts, ideas and actions, for socially engaged artists and those from other related sectors who are interested in the call for creative social interactions.
