Past Programs

Pari Dialogues 2009-2013
During the 2009 meeting on Ethics, Business and the Future the Pari Center resolved to pursue a new venture called the Pari Dialogues. Rather than a conventional conference in which participants present prepared papers, a Pari Dialogue takes the form of an alchemical container for free and open discussions. One in which participants are open to the exploration of new positions in more creative ways. The Center has held Pari Dialogues in London and Oslo. A Dialogue on Nature is planned for London’s South Bank Center for Autumn, 2013.

Sustainable Cities of the Future 2011-2013
In 2011 the Pari Center became a partner in a European Union project on Sustainable Cities of the Future. The other partners are based in Berlin, London, Lisbon, Tromso and Stockholm. The first meeting was held in Pari in 2011 with the Center attending subsequent meetings in Berlin and Stockholm in 2012 and Tromso and London in 2013. A final meeting will be held in Lisbon in June, 2013 and a report will be submitted to the EU in September 2013. While the other partners are focusing on the future of cities, Pari’s role has been to explore the sustainability of rural areas in the face of demands made by cities and, in particular, the health and survival of small farming and local produce.

London, March 1999

In March 1999 a group of artists and scientists met at the October Gallery, London to explore the relationship between art and science. The meeting was organzied by David Peat and in many ways sowed the seed that grew into the Pari Center for New Learning.
