Description

Join us for a fascinating talk with Andri Snær Magnason, hosted by Keele University's Institute for Sustainable Futures in the Salvin Room, Keele Hall on Wednesday 26th September from 6pm-7pm.

Andri Snær Magnason is an internationally acclaimed novelist, poet, film producer and actor; he is considered to be one of the foremost environmental activists in Europe. In 2016, he ran for President of Iceland and came in third place. Andri's book, Dreamland, 'details the destruction of our planet in following the heavy industrial trail of carnage involved in smelting aluminium - questioning the relationships that are involved, the hiding of truth for gain, for expediency'. Dreamland has also been made into a feature-length documentary, whilst Andri's children's book, The Story of the Blue Planet, has been adapted for the stage.

Andri will discuss politics & anti-politics, contemporary literature and historic folklore, poetry, environmental activism, and climate change.

This event is open to the public and is free of charge.

Drinks reception from 5.30pm in the Great Hall.
