Join us for a series of events across the afternoon exploring the potential of art and exchange in response to some of the environmental challenges of our times:
- Workshops and displays: Environments / Encounters / Exchanges
- Talk: Walking Aesthetics and Performing Landscape
This afternoon of events explores how arts practices based in exchange (between artists and scientists; between artists and the environment; between artists and participants; amongst participants): might begin to respond to some of the environmental challenges of our times. A series of events will stage a series of environmental encounters that explore the role of art and invite reflection on our relationship with the Earth.
Explore underground spaces through the collective creation of an imagined underground cave network with Flora Parrott.
Join a knitting workshop, tying together conversations and observations about the local environment with yarn. (No experience necessary and materials, patterns and knitting help will be provided).
Participate in a collaborative artwork using ideas of ‘damage’ to explore how natures can be crossed out or erased, with poet Amy Cutler.
The events are organised by the Royal Holloway Centre for the GeoHumanities as part of the Centre’s commitment to exploring how arts practices can enable us to imagine and enact different Earth Futures.
