Veronika Sekules will discuss her journey from founding the GroundWork Gallery to curating 12 high quality contemporary art exhibitions and running several environmental campaigns there since 2016.
Connecting art and environment can help us to see the environment differently, in new ways, and in greater detail. The greater attentiveness that we learn through art can help us to understand the environment better. Understanding leads to more sensitivity in the way the environment is managed. And a detailed understanding of environment leads to more inspiration for artists and greater power for them to inspire us, the viewing public, to see things more clearly and to respond with thoughtfulness and action.
Specialising in the environment, GroundWork Gallery aims to show how art can enable us to respond to our changing environment and shape its future.
