    Our Futures Past

    48:35

    In this episode, we explore collective imaginations of the past and future, and different cultural understandings of time. Connecting our heritage, actions and legacies, how can we create a caring world for generations to come?   The guests are Afrofuturist writer, filmmaker, dancer and thinker Ytasha Womack in conversation with public philosopher Roman Krznaric; artist, writer, curator, researcher and pleasure activist Ama Josephine Budge; and Māori musician, artist and practitioner Jerome Kavanagh.     Episode Notes   Join Afrofuturist writer, filmmaker, dancer and thinker Ytasha Womack, author of Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci Fi & Fantasy Culture, in conversation with public philosopher Roman Krznaric, author of The Good Ancestor: How to think long term in a short-term world, to consider what it means to be a good ancestor, whether our brains are built for long-term thinking and the importance of re-examining the past to imagine different and better futures.    Artist, writer, curator, researcher and pleasure activist Ama Josephine Budge shares extracts from No Home Left Behind, a piece of speculative fiction about a sentient home standing over swelling waters. The work imagines futures of care in the midst of a climate crisis, drawing on erased pasts, archives and embodied memories. Māori musician, artist and practitioner Jerome Kavanagh from Aotearoa New Zealand, shares a sound healing experience, using Taonga pūoro instruments that reflect the sound of the natural environment from the mountains to the sea as tools to heal and promote a healthy body, mind and spirit. Taonga Puro holds the vibration of the natural world and when played this vibration resonates within us and helps to trace our genealogy through our matriarchal line and reconnect to the intelligence and power of nature.  A BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Wellcome Collection collaboration.

    Earthly Perspectives

    47:37

    What can we learn from the acts of care and reciprocity we can see in plants, animals and minerals?  In Earthly Perspectives, we try to de-centre the human, listen closely and take a different view of the natural world.  The guests are artist Rachel Pimm, writer and academic Merlin Sheldrake, and artists Jana Winderen and Patricia Domínguez.   Episode Notes In this episode, artist Rachel Pimm talks to biologist and author Merlin Sheldrake. Rachel’s work sees the world from the perspective of non-human beings or elements and is fascinated by the acts of care and reciprocity we can see in plants, animals and minerals. Merlin, author of Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures has been studying fungi for many years. They discuss the acts of care and reciprocity we can see in plants, animals and minerals, if it’s possible to get into the ‘mind’ of an organism or a plant and what the living and non-living can teach us.    Immerse yourself in a deep, focussed listening experience with artist Jana Winderen. Jana has been working for the last 15 years with underwater sound and those made by creatures that make sounds inaudible to humans, like bats, rats, fish, echolocation of dolphins; bringing attention to ecosystems and to issues that need focus. Chilean artist Patricia Domínguez uses healing practices in her work, bringing to light hidden ancestral knowledges, to examine the way that humans relate to and often exploit plants, animals and minerals. Join Patricia for meditations that  explore our interconnectedness with the world we inhabit through quartz frequencies and try to connect with our perception of the invisible through the eye of a blinded toucan.  A BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Wellcome Collection collaboration. Presented by Nwando Ebizie. Music by Nkisi. Sound by Axel Kacoutié. A Reduced Listening Production, produced by Georgia and exec produced by Alannah Chance.  For the full transcript of this episode please visit baltic.art/for-all-i-care Merlin Sheldrake, Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures is published by Vintage.

    Connecting for Change

    1:00:36

    How can we care, collectively? Can we address unequal access to rest and care, creatively? Join Nwando Ebizie to look at how rest has been politicised, whether the mental health system can be redeemed by art and how to navigate the noise of the city.  Guests include Black Power Naps (artists Navild Acosta and Fannie Sosa), researcher Professor Stephani Hatch, artists Dolly Sen and Rowdy SS. Includes references to slavery and discussion of mental health issues. If you or someone you know are feeling emotionally distressed, there are organisations that offer advice and support. If you’re in the UK or Ireland you can get in touch with the Samaritans day or night, 365 days a year. You can call them for free on 116 123, email them at jo@samaritans.org, or visit www.samaritans.org. Other international helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org.   Episode Notes Can caring collectively address existing unequal systems and services?  This episode contains references to slavery and discussion of mental health issues. We consider health inequalities with artist, writer, filmmaker, performer and activist Dolly Sen and Stephani Hatch, Professor of sociology and epidemiology at the Institute of Science, Kings College, London, who is currently leading a Wellcome-funded study, TIDES (Tackling Inequalities and Discrimination Experiences in health services). They discuss centering the voices of people who have been unheard by the UK mental health system through research and through bringing beauty to what Dolly calls an ugly system.  With Black Power Naps, created by artists Navild Acosta and Fannie Sosa, we explore how they tackle unequal access to rest in Western society, where relaxation is a luxury for the privileged and considers some of the ways that the structures of Western societies deny certain people access to something as fundamental as rest. Highlighting the long history of sleep deprivation for black and racialised people and the attempts to justify this inequality with pseudoscience, as part of the ongoing project, the artists have created a Dream Bag as a guidance for better sleep. The toolkit has been specially conceived for people who experience racism regularly in our society, to support breaking with constant fatigue by slowing down and resting. Physical packs to aid relaxation and sleep will be distributed to people based locally to BALTIC, in Gateshead, of South Asian heritage, East Asian, South East Asian heritage, and people of African or Caribbean heritage alongside a digital toolkit, launching online that can be found at www.baltic.art/dreambag. Settle in for some alone time in the midst of  the cacophony of communal sound with London-based international artist Rowdy SS, working with sound, movement, dance, music, installation, and live happening. In this work, Rowdy SS brings our attention to the sounds of communal spaces, which for many of us have taken on new meaning this past year. If you or someone you know are feeling emotionally distressed there are organisations that offer advice and support. If you’re in the UK or Ireland you can get in touch with the Samaritans day or night, 365 days a year.

    Distant Touch

    45:45

    In these hug-starved times, can we care without touch?  In this episode we think about what touch means, tune in to our surroundings and listen in order to be touched by sound. Join dancer, choreographer and researcher Vera Tussing, social neuroscientist Michael Banissy, artist and programmer Claire Tolan, and writer and academic Elizabeth-Jane Burnett. Episode Notes Listen to writer Elizabeth-Jane Burnett discuss healing by connecting to place through touch as she reads from her work The Grassling, and new work in progress The Living Light about moss. Dancer, choreographer and researcher Vera Tussing talks to social neuroscientist Michael Banissy about how we can have more open conversations about touch and about the complex and deeply personal responses we have to touch, touch and social bonds, wellbeing and connection.  Tune into your skin with artist and programmer Claire Tolan through ASMR or autonomous sensory Meridian response, which describes a physiological tingling sensation that can be generated by soft sounds. We’ll explore the tactile and emotional resonances of sounds that can help us feel the presence of others and tune in to our immediate surroundings. A BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Wellcome Collection collaboration. Presented by Nwando Ebizie. Music by Nkisi. Sound by Axel Kacoutié. A Reduced Listening Production, produced by Katherine Godfrey and exec produced by Alannah Chance.  Elizabeth-Jane Burnett's The Grassling is published by Penguin and The Living Light is a work-in-progress.
