Booking Essential

What is it that makes us human? Does trying to understand other intelligent species such 
as chimpanzees or dolphins tell us something about ourselves, our belief that we are somehow unique? In this salon and bus tour of Knowsley Safari Park we explore interspecies communication and whether we can break free of what John Berger called the “loneliness of man as a species”.

Joining the discussion are Rachel Mayeri, creator of AND Festival highlight Primate Cinema: Apes as Family, and expert in chimp cognition Dr Sarah-Jane Vick.

Simian Safari

Please note: Unlike previous salons, this Salon is taking place at Knowsley Safari  Park including a bus from Liverpool and a tour of the park. Our coach will be picking up guests in Liverpool at The Art Organisation (TAO) Gallery,
102 Seel Street, Liverpool, L1 4BL

Paying guests are invited to stay at the Knowsley Safari Park and join us for a dinner and a Drive-In screening of the 1968 film Planet of the Apes, we'll provide the cars and the popcorn, then return you safely back to Liverpool.
