The Ancestor’s Trail
Celia Robbins discovers a unique event taking place in Epping Forest later this month. The Ancestor’s Trail is a walk that’s inspired by science. It’s all about evolution and the tree of life – with added music, poetry and dance. If you’d like to join the walkers on Saturday 29th, you can find all the details about starting points, and register at ancestorstrail.org.uk.
EastCast explores the arts, culture and community nurtured in East London but resonating way beyond. This month Jonny Virgo and Pearl Wise are joined by Roxi Jahanshani and Asma Shah from You Make It an organisation enabling young unemployed women to pursue their goals, influential transmedia creator and CEO of story gaming platform Conducttr Rob Pratten and and cross-media artist SG Milner ahead of his The Night Is Over, Applaud exhibition. New contributor Celia Robbins takes us on The Ancestors Trail in Epping Forest and Jessie Lawson investigates why ‘that time of the month’ is still taboo.
