Birds on the move - The influence of environmental change

Location:
Pontio, Bangor
Time:
Monday 14 May 2018, 11:30–17:00

A short symposium is being held on Monday 14th May, at Bangor University, Gwynedd, Wales, on the subject of Birds on the move: the influence of environmental change.

This is the result of a partnership between an artist Angela Davies and a scientist Charles Bishop, with support from the Bangor University Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

There will be a display of a sound responsive kinetic sculpture between 11:30 to 13:30 in Adeilad Pontio level 2, followed by a short symposium with presentation, 14:00 to 17:00 in PL2 Pontio, exploring the idea of birds on the move and how bird population may be affected by environmental change and human behaviour.
