CLIMATE CULTURE : online exhibition CALL OUT
The way humans choose to interact with the world is having a devastating effect on the climate and on our natural ecosystems. More than 50% of the world’s animal species are estimated to be at risk of extinction. With over 40% of the global plant species also at risk. Clearly our current impact on the earth is catastrophic! If there is to be any future at all for the next generations we need to work together and change our way of being in the world.
Ecological artist, curator, and activist Ashleigh Downey invites you to be part of an online exhibition.
The idea behind Climate Culture is to invite people from all walks of life to consider our current climate crisis – to challenge our current culture and way of being in the world. To consider how we might be able to create a new culture and consider what a new sustainable culture might look like.
Call for submissions is open to everyone interested in creating a new culture focused on sustainability: writers, musicians, philosophers, architects, scientists, educators, artists, concerned citizens, and all those in between… Together we can create a more sustainable future for all.
SUBMISSIONS: a poem, drawing, painting, sculpture, piece of music, photograph, iconography, piece of writing, a potential solution, mind-map, soundscape, personal quote, or other form of creative expression.
Any image submitted must be Square in shape, a high quality .jpg or .png file up to a maximum file size of 2MB.
Deadline: midnight, 12th November 2021
