SURVIVOR ON THE MOON

Saturday 20 July   11 – 1pm
A workshop towards the Young Persons’ Constitution for Lunar Settlement with Annalea Beattie

How will you survive on the Moon? When the outside environment is poisonous and harsh, when it promises instant death, when you are confined inside your spaceship under constant surveillance in limited physical space with the same people every day, what do you need to make sure you are mentally and physically well and happy?

This two-hour drawing /writing workshop asks you to bring to the gallery one or two objects (or ideas) that you think might be important to your own survival on the Moon.
