The Lions’ Gate Open Day

The Lions' Gate Open Day

On Saturday 24th of September from 1pm – 5pm we’re throwing the gate open and inviting you to be a part of the Climate Fringe and the Great Big Green Week, supported by the Permaculture Association.

Headlining @ 3.30pm, we’re delighted to host influential, Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology at Aberdeen University Tim Ingold, who’ll be presenting his latest work ‘Generation Now‘ from our Storytelling Chair.

Tim has made a huge impact on design philosophy, and was a favourite of Edinburgh Napier’s late, great Prof. David Benyon, whose own design work on Blended Spaces has fundamentally informed The Lions’ Gate, to the extent that our work contributed to a Blended Spaces Impact Case Study awarded 4* in 2021’s Research Excellence Framework, denoting research quality that is world-leading in originality, significance and rigour.  What goes around…

Other wholesome and life-affirming activities of the day include:

  • Holistic Therapies by Emma J @ Blue Butterfly Therapies
  • Student exhibits from the School of Arts and Creative Industries
  • Campus-grown food
  • Cocktails and drinks
  • Music, including DJ Someone’s Dad
  • Garden tours
  • Plus more! Please get in touch if you’d like to be involved: callum.egan@napier.ac.uk

As we experience environmental and economic collapse, failures in geo, national and local politics, human health & well-being under siege, and a general sense of hopelessness, the day will provide an opportunity to share, unwind, discuss, listen and delight in what is possible, in our imaginative, permaculture-inspired, urban, campus garden.

The event is free but ticketed, so
please register here.

Look forward to seeing you on the 24th!
