Join us on June 22, 2024, for an extraordinary day at the Church of Holy Innocents in High Beach, Epping Forest, where King’s College London invites you to Sound, Music, and Climate Change in Spiritual Communities. From 9am to 5pm, immerse yourself in a series of stimulating discussions, hands-on workshops, and inspiring performances that explore the intersection of spirituality, environmental stewardship, and community. Engage with experts like King's College London's Dr Rowan Gard, the Royal College of Music's Dr Carola Darwin, and composer Jenny Guilford in sessions that promise to challenge and expand your understanding of eco-music and climate activism. Highlights include the keynote composition "Climate of the Bells" and a diverse range of workshops, from forest bird walks to Morris dancing, and an Interfaith Panel Discussion with local spiritual leaders.

All are welcome - whatever your interest - places are limited. Register now using this link. Check out the schedule here.

Don't miss this chance to be part of a transformative event that combines intellectual rigor with creative expression, all set in the serene and historic backdrop of Epping Forest. Registration opens at 7:30am with early-bird activities like a forest walk led by Noreen Niazi from Epping Forest Heritage, with the day formally beginning at 9am. The day concludes with an optional social session featuring live music by the Romford Ceilidh Band at The King’s Oak Hotel. This free event offers limited spaces, so register now to secure your spot and join a community dedicated to exploring and addressing the pressing challenges of climate change through the powerful lenses of sound and spirituality.
