Future Station: Paléo Energétique

Edge Hill Station Garden was first re-developed by Metal in 2011. Earlier this year Metal secured financial support from Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative to develop a yearlong programme of art, food and gardening. Throughout the course of 2017 we’ll be exploring how public green spaces benefit our day-to-day lives and can drive awareness of environmental sustainability.


As part of this programme Metal, Liverpool is delighted to announce that it will host Paris based organisation, Paléo Energétique for a special edition Future Station event.


Paléo Energétique is an open source, collaborative research project investigating sustainable energy inventions that history has forgotten. From ancient hydraulic machines to solar thermal concentrators, their work aims to inspire engineers, designers, inventors, artists and communities to look back in history for inspiration to solve the urgent environmental issues of today.


Paléo Energétique will give a public presentation of their research and projects, broadening our understanding of historic and present day sustainable energy technologies and innovations.


Also participating will be Dr Greg Lynall, Reader in English, and co-director of the Literature & Science Hub at the University of Liverpool. He is currently writing a history of solar power in literature, science and culture.

The evening will include an open discussion exploring how arts led activity can stimulate  innovative responses around the renewable energy and sustainability agenda in our surrounding area.


This event also forms part of an open call commissioning process, inviting artists to respond to the theme of – utilising Edge Hill Station Garden to encourage people to use public transport. 


This event is FREE but booking is essential. Click here to book your tickets. FREE food will be provided after the discussion.
