Mountains of Inspiration
An afternoon symposium of inspirational lectures, short films and debate,hosted by Eric Robson and featuring presentations on characters such as Ruskin, Coleridge, Wordsworth and Tom West. We ask why the Lake District has been such a spur to creative energy and thought over the past few centuries.
Karen Darke - Outside In
Skiing across the icy wilderness of Greenland, climbing the dizzy heights of El Capitan, kayaking in Patagonia; these are inspirational adventures even the fittest and most daring of us may only dream of... but Karen is paralyzed from the chest down. Karen will talk about what happened 'inside' on these adventures. She explores the elusive 'why?'Why take the risks? Why take the pains? Why exhaust yourself in pursuit of adventure?
