How do you think we might evolve in the future? How can we keep up with the speed at which the world is changing? Can we make sure science and technology will make the world a better place? These are some of the questions Blue Monkey artist Judith Alder asks in her new project, Once in a Universe, exploring life in The Anthropocene: The Age of Man.

Over the next ten months, Judith will be working with other artists, curators, the public and professionals to explore ideas about how we and our planet have evolved since life began on Earth, and how we might continue to evolve in an age of rapid change.

Following a brief introduction to the project, special guest, John Cooper, Emeritus Keeper of Natural Sciences at The Booth Museum, Brighton will take a look at the processes of evolution by natural selection and climate change, set against the backdrop of geological time. Artist Susan Diab will chair the evening and lead a discussion following John’s talk, exploring how our knowledge might make us better equipped to understand the changing present and work towards a better future.

Once in a Universe is supported by The National Lottery through Arts Council England, East Sussex Arts Partnership and Devonshire West Big Local.
