THE YAYU PROJECT: PRESERVING WILD ARABICA AND IMPROVING LIVELIHOODS

Friday 26th April, 6-8pm

Swan Song Coffee presents a free educational talk with the founder of Union Hand-Roast Coffee, Jeremy Torz, as he discusses the the inspiring Yayu Biosphere Reserve Project in Ethiopia, recently selected as winner of the SCA Project Sustainability Award 2019.

Jeremy will be explaining Union's role in the collaborative project setting about to improve the long-term livelihoods of coffee farmers at Yayu through Union Direct Trade and also the efforts being made to protect the biodiversity of the forests there, home to the vital natural populations of Arabica coffee that we rely heavily upon.

DEEP TIME: AN EXHIBITION BY LINDA HEMMERSBACH AND JAMES FIELD

Launching 17th May 6-9pm. Exhibition continues until 14th June

‘Deep Time’ is an exhibition and collaboration between artist Linda Hemmersbach and percussionist James Field, exploring the possibilities of painting through animation, sound, and site-specific installation.

Inspired by a recent journey to Assynt in the Scottish Highlands, the works explore notions of geological time and movement of the earth, and ancient landscapes.

Throughout the exhibition, a sense of shifting and moving of elements is implied through the use of multi-part compositional structures and arrangements. Subtle dualities within the work suggesting fragmentation and continuity, fluidity and solidity, immediacy and the ungraspable, evoke a psychological and atmospheric space.
