Ben Okri: Stories for a Changing Planet

Friday, November 17, 2023 at 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


An unmissable opportunity to hear Booker Prize winning author, poet, playwright and cultural activist, Ben Okri, read a new work commissioned as part of the Everything is Connected season.

The poet, playwright, essayist, cultural activist and Booker Prize winner, Ben Okri has been described by Ali Smith as a ‘literary and social visionary’. He reads a new work, commissioned especially for the Everything is Connected season, inspired by the idea of sharing stories that will help us to live more sustainably in the world. Ben is joined by Professor Pablo Mukherjee.

“Humans have shown that they don’t simply produce literature to feel good about themselves, but also to face hard choices and to engage in collective action. After all, the ability to coordinate our minds through language was what first jump-started the accelerated cultural development that set us apart from the rest of life on earth. Now that same communicative tool must come to our aid in acts of collective storytelling. Is it time for the storytellers of the world to unite?” Martin Puchner, Stories for a Changing Planet

In partnership with the Cultural Programme as part of the Everything is Connected season
