Embodying Climate Resilience and Resistance: Decolonizing Bodies and Lands Through Art
February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A hands-on art-based workshop centring themes of climate wellbeing; art as personal and community resilience & resistance; and creative modes of storytelling and documentation in the era of climate emergency and injustice. Join us for the continuation of the art workshop exploring the relation of environmental issues and race.
This session will also offer a unique platform for body mapping, fostering a safe space for discussions on how environmental challenges differ for IBPOC individuals, revealing the lived disparities. Our goal through this session is to promote healing through collective conversation, art making and learn through personal histories. Lastly we will be providing education on the current realities and necessary actions of Congo in collaboration with Africa Awareness Initiative this Black History Month.
Organized by UBC Climate Hub, Asha Collective, UBC Exposure, Africa Awareness Initiative (AAI) and Hatch Art Gallery. Part of Climate Emergency Week.
