Renewable energy is considered to be a recent technological development, but in fact it has a long history. For centuries the possibility of harnessing the power of the sun has inspired scientists, engineers, writers and artists alike. The future of energy production and our environment will not only be shaped by science and technology: the arts also have a role to play in influencing our behaviour and imagination. Tate Exchange invites you to be part of that creative conversation.

Drop in to the Tate Exchange to take part in a series of creative workshops and talks. Researchers from the University of Liverpool will be there to lead explorations on art, science and the history of renewable energy. Share your thoughts by composing a poem or writing a story, or record and add your voice to an evolving energy soundscape that will be performed over the weekend.
