Description

The Hubbub of News

Part of a series of free events brought to you by Rest & its discontents at the Mile End Art Pavilion. 

News is available 24 hours a day. It's hard to avoid, but would we be happier without the hubbub of news disrupting our rest? Are there new ways of creating news that can avoid making us feel miserable or overwhelmed? Join broadcaster and writer Claudia Hammond with a panel of psychologists and journalists including Charlie Beckett, Denise Baden and the BBC's Reeta Chakrabarti to discuss the hubbub of news.

About Rest & its discontents:

Rest matters to everyone. Its presence, absence and quality affects mind, body, culture and society. Rest & its discontents explores the dynamics of rest, stress, relaxation, sound, noise, work and mindwandering in an evolving laboratory of moving image, performance, drawing, poetry, data, sound, music and debate.

Rest & its discontents features the work of over 25 contributors including Nina Garthwaite’s radio for mind wanderers Default Mode Radio Network; Christian Nold’s audio installation and noise-monitoring network Prototyping a new Heathrow Airport; Tamarin Norwood’s video Sleep Studies I–V; and Patrick Coyle’s thirty-nine floating solar-powered objects alluding to the categories of labour prohibited on the Sabbath.

Rest & its discontents draws on Hubbub, a two-year residency undertaken by fifty international artists, writers, social scientists, broadcasters, humanities researchers, scientists and mental health experts in The Hub at Wellcome Collection, and led by Durham University.
