Part 2. 2023 - The Interspecies Festival of Finsbury Park
This Summer the Interspecies Festival will open as an immersive role-play event across three biodiversity habitats: the old forest, the new forest and the wildflower meadow to be enjoyed by the park’s public. Players will be supported to inhabit the bodies of their new species, and explore the park with new eyes, ears and a totally new sense of what is important.
Based on everything learned and proposed through the Assemblies we embark - in our new species bodies (in mask and costume) - on a voyage of discovery, marvels, sombre reflection and broadened horizons.
⇨ In the Multisensory Mystery Tour we see, hear and smell the old forest through the sensory superpowers of squirrels, trees, and dogs.
⇨ We enjoy movement, mindfulness, respite and relaxation in the Interspecies Day Care and Spa at the new forest.
⇨ Finally at the wildflower meadow we enjoy the Festival of Poop. This includes ‘songs’ from the Multispecies Choir and a game of Pass-the-Poop-Parcel - a brilliant innovation in waste-free interspecies gastronomy.
⇨ Events will take place alongside the presentation of the draft Treaty for discussion by all the human and more-than-human people of the park.
