Dinner: 5.30-8.30pm, ESP members and invited guests only

Join us for an ESP social following an afternoon of quick-fire talks about projects, processes, materials, ideas, histories and relationships.

* This event takes its name from Primo Levi’s book of essays of the same title in which the writer discusses spiders, butterflies, fear, writing and many other things. Levi described the work as ‘the fruit of my roaming about as a curious dilettante for more than a decade … invasions of the field, incursions into other people’s hunting preserves, forays into the boundless territories of zoology, astronomy and linguistics.’
