This 10 day workshop enabled participants to engage with multidisciplinary artistic experiments to experience how the artistic practice can offer tools and questions for the reconstruction towards an ecosocial balance. This activity was an invitation to travel between experimental and experiential, seeking an environment of dialogue about the act of being/creating together with artistic expressions as the vehicle.
The aim was to learn through collaborative approaches and generate artworks that enhance other narratives, questions and forms that will expand (g)local conversations about nature, environmental crisis, sustainability and climate change, among other topics. This workshop was led by Seila Fernández Arconada who is an experienced multidisciplinary artist and researcher with international experience in participatory and collaborative transdisciplinary projects.
This 10 days experience took `place in Lutter am Barrengerge (Germany) from the 18th to 27th of March 2022.
"Here are some impressions from our latest project, "Reforesting Minds". Feeling energised and re-connected through sharing 10 peaceful days with Seila Fernandez Arconada, in the tranquil and inspiring surroundings of Burg Lutter am Barandberger, Germany, engaging with the themes of climate change and ecosocial balance through the frame of artistic collaboration.
"Reforesting Minds" was the first of a series of international Trainings Courses we will be running this year in the framework of our Erasmus+ accreditation."
