Artistic practices for ecological restoration and collective resilience
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.
