Live Stream Utopia 2016: Little Fluffy Clouds

If we’re going to hunt for a better way of life, there's no better place to start than among the clouds. As part of the Utopia 2016 series at Kings College London, Little Atoms has already explored potential paradises within the health faculties at Kings College London, anarchistic utopias and linguistics, and material futures within fertility and textiles, but now it's time to look upwards on onwards. 

From 7pm tonight, 4 August, Neil Denny will be chairing a conversation between Philip Stanier, artistic director of the Strange Names Collective and Head of Department for Performing Arts at the University of Winchester, and Penny Newell, a poet and PhD candidate in the conceptualisation of clouds throughout history, philosophy, literature and the performing arts at Kings College London. You can watch the live stream on this page or grab a ticket to the event here


In the particle of me that cares for this, I betrayed those little atoms with a kiss
