Apocalypse Talks

Introducing Apocalypse Talks. Join us weekly on Wednesdays at 7pm as we get into the textures, sensations, emotions, landscapes, materials, aromas, by-products, aesthetics, and other messiness of living in a multi-crisis reality. With a range of guests we’ll talk about how we are dealing, and how our practices and processes refract life in the end times.

"These places of possibility within ourselves are dark because they are ancient and hidden; they have survived and grown strong through darkness. Within these deep places, each one of us holds an incredible reserve of creativity and power, of unexamined and unrecorded emotion and feeling. The woman's place of power within each of us is neither white nor surface; it is dark, it is ancient, and it is deep." - Audre Lorde Poetry is not a Luxury (1985)

Lately I've been reflecting on the meaning - or I should say, anti-meaning - of the words "norm" and "normal", as in: the "new normal", the "return to normal", the "erosion of norms" (e.g. Trump) etc - words that have been stacked and sliced into such a dizzying array of incongruities that everything they touch is rendered, by the mere fact of association, supremely empty.
