[lang_en]3rd Ring Out: China

A talk and discussion at Xindanwei featuring UK artists Zoë Svendsen and Simon Daw, Co-Directors of 3rd Ring Out – an innovative project which uses art to explore climate change

Time: Saturday 9 July 2011, 14h00-17h00
Venue: Xindanwei, 50 Yongjia Rd., Shanghai
Language: English & Chinese
Cost: FREE and invitation only – with fresh coffee, tea, fruit and snacks provided
Organizers: 3rd Ring Out, Metis Arts, British Council China, Connections through Culture, Xindanwei

Are you an artist? Are you interested in climate change?

Zoë Svendsen and Simon Daw are UK artists and co-directors of 3rd Ring Out.  This unusual and innovative multi-media performance and installation toured the UK in 2010 and 2011, engaging with audiences to enable them to make decisions on how to respond to scenarios of a climate-changed future in 2033.

In partnership with Xindanwei, Zoë and Simon want to invite artists, environmentalists, climate scientists and people working at the intersection of these disciplines to an event which looks at the way in which art can address, explore and mediate questions triggered by climate change.

Please ‘save the date’ and join Zoë and Simon at Xindanwei on 9 July to hear more about 3rd Ring Out, and to share ideas and views on the relationship between art and climate change in China.

The event will use ‘open space’ methods to encourage self-directed group discussion, normally three or four groups. Time will be allowed for each of the groups to feed back towards the end of the afternoon.

Important: This is an invitation only event.
Zoë and Simon are keen to meet a broad cross section of people who have an insight into:
· Climate impacts in China – and their impacts on cities/urban living
· Planning issues around adaptation and change
· The cultural perception of climate change in China
· Emergency planning

We are also keen to meet artists and potential collaborators across the following disciplines, who might be interested in working on a Chinese version of 3rd Ring Out in 2012 as part of British Council China’s UK Now Festival:
· Writers
· Sound artists (composers and/or with experience of computer sound design)
· Video designers
· Interactive computer media creators
· Performers/live artists (especially if they also have one of the above skills and/or make their own work)

The focus of the event is on researching climate science and climate change. If you are interested by the subject and can connect with and contribute to some of the ideas behind 3rd Ring Out, please send an invitation request to us by calling 021-34280783 within office hours (9h30 – 18h00) or by sending an email to with the following information provided:
- Your full name
- Your occupation and specialized area
- Which company or organization do you work for?
- You email address
- Your mobile number (Optional)

Thank you for your collaboration!
