‘Ecological thinking, beyond the conventional understanding of environment, asks us to consider new ways of imagining how we conceive of and consider the world. As Donna Haraway writes, “[…] another world is not only urgently needed, it is possible, but not if we are ensorcelled in despair, cynicism, or optimism, and the belief/disbelief discourse of progress.” The third SPARC Symposium will consider this shift in thinking and consider how to respond to this moment of crisis through the lens of sound practice from a variety of perspectives including talks, discussions, concerts and a foraging and jam making event.’
