One of the great delights of my job is to be invited to attend, or take part in, really interesting events.  The latest invitation is to be part of a panel following the screening of The Ecology of Mind – a Daughter's Portrait of Gregory Bateson.

Gregory Bateson was a scientist, philosopher, anthropologist  - an all-round thinker who was interested in patterns and relationships in the living world. He was exactly the kind of thinker that we need in our complex world.

The short trailer for the film is worth watching and certainly inspired me to want to see more.

The film has won various prizes and has been playing to packed cinemas in America and Europe.

There is only one Glasgow date – The Old Hairdressers in Renfield Lane on Friday 17th February at 7 pm. There is a panel discussion following the film with Nora Bateson and a variety of other folk, including myself. For information and to book tickets click here.

The venue in Glasgow is very small so book early if you are interested.

There are two Edinburgh screenings on the 23rd and 24th  of February.
