FAB Fest: 'Take Me Down the Paradise City: The Hortus Conclusus and Transdisciplinary Gardens'
University of Warwick (on campus)

This session, led by Dr Bryan Brazeau (Associate Professor, Liberal Arts) will introduce participants to the medieval and Renaissance idea of the hortus conclusus or closed paradise garden. It will combine aspects of theology, art history, and literature to explore how garden design was freighted with ideological significance in the late middle ages and renaissance periods. You will also have the opportunity to design your own twenty-first century paradise garden.

Sessions will run 12.30-13.30 and 13.45-14.45 followed by more informal drop-ins from 15.00-16.30.

Bryan's session is part of the official opening of the new Faculty of Arts building, featuring a whole host of activities to celebrate arts and creativity on campus. There’ll be live music, student performances and a range of workshops, activities and drop-in events running mostly from 12.30 pm to 5 pm, with live music continuing until 9 pm. Take a look at some of the activities that will be taking place below, or come along and wander around the building on the day to see what you can find!
