Event description

Description

Fire, water, earth and air: these four elements of antiquity have influenced thought and culture for most of our recorded history. Timeline: Elements is an exciting four-part podcast series by James Stewart, host of Timeline from VPR Classical, that explores how these four elements have shaped the way we think and express ourselves throughout history. The series touches on philosophy, science, faith, art and culture; drawing connections from different disciplines and time periods. It’s quite a ride and you can join James on a guided tour of some of the podcast highlights on Tuesday, July 24 at VPR’s Stetson Studio One.

This hour-long event will explore the highlights of the podcast, featuring new insights, visual elements and performances from local musicians. We’ll try to answer the question which has been posed for millennia: which of the elements came first?

Join us in VPR's Stetson Studio One at our Colchester headquarters. Doors open at 6:30, program begins at 7.

Tickets are free but space is limited. Please reserve your seats here!

Timeline: Elements is supported by Stern Center for Language and Learning.
