The Art of Slow – Carl Honoré Discusses Art & Education, The Slow Way

11th February 2016

Super Slow Way is delighted to be collaborating with Slow Education in inviting international bestselling author, broadcaster and Slow activist Carl Honoré to speak at a unique event at Darwen Library Theatre on March 10th.

Super Slow Way and Slow Education share the belief that curiosity and creativity are at the heart of learning and art, and that both can help us lead a more fulfilling life. ‘Slow’ is about taking the time to do things well: to put quality over quantity. Slowing things down allows us to have a more meaningful interaction with each other and our environment, allowing us to think more deeply about how the world works and how we can contribute to it.

“Fast and Slow do more than just describe a rate of change. They are shorthand for ways of being, or philosophies of life. Fast is busy, controlling, aggressive, hurried, analytical, stressed, superficial, impatient, active, quantity-over-quality. Slow is calm, careful, receptive, still, intuitive, patient, reflective, quality-over-quantity. It is about making real and meaningful connections- with people, culture, work, food, everything” (Carl Honoré; In Praise of Slow). 

Carl Honoré’s bestselling book In Praise of Slow: Challenging the Cult of Speed has been translated into over 30 languages. He speaks on ‘Slow’ to audiences around the world. His TEDTalk has been viewed by 1.8 million people.

At this event you will be able to:

  • Learn about the Slow Movement and connect with people who share the Slow philosophy
  • Join the Slow Education Network, be involved in creative research and CPD opportunities and connect with other schools, teachers and education professionals who share a belief in the importance of learning from passion, experience and curiosity
  • Explore the possibility of Slow artists’ residencies in a range of contexts

We hope you can join us for what promises to be a stimulating, free, event.
