Handy tips for the new nuclear age (1) (blog)17/10/2008
With the UK government's new commitment to nuclear energy, let's re-visit some of those old recurring debates around clean energy, safety, costs, proliferation and waste in today's world of climate change ... Then again, do we really want to involve ourselves in polarised shouting matches, where facts seem as elusive as consensus? Perhaps there are ways of approaching this from fresh perspectives. Or we could just go to an East London art opening instead and have a nice glass of wine.
The exhibition is commissioned and produced by The Arts Catalyst with SCAN, and will be at the Nicholls and Clarke Building in Shoreditch High Street, East London (opening Thu 13 November and then open 14 - 16, 20 - 23, 27 - 30 November 2008 - [FLAG:OLD_SITE] see our website for more details).
Two discussion events will accompany the exhibition - a 'Nuclear Talkaoke' with The People Speak on Friday 14 November and a Nuclear Forum with the RSA Art & Ecology on Friday 28 November. Again, details on our [FLAG:OLD_SITE] website.
So, in the spirit of Nuclear, here is the first of our 'Handy Tips for the New Nuclear Age': How to Survive a Terrorist Nuclear Attack:
