Online training: ‘Nature Based Solutions and art. A relationship to explore’

The meeting will take place on Thursday, 21 March, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, and registration is required.

More and more spaces in the fields of business, the environment and citizen participation are calling for nature-based solutions that are committed to the urgent needs of our world. In this scenario, it is increasingly necessary to (re)thinkwhat the contribution of art can be in this process and to imagine how to produce sustainable, nature-based artistic artworks.

This challenge involves us rethinking imaginaries, aesthetics or forms of collective governance that provide answers to these other forms of creation and cultural production, understanding it from an ecosystemic perspective and considering the ways in which nature relates.

This online training on ‘Nature Based Solutions and art. A relationship to explore’,  given by Juan del Río, will take place on Thursday, 21 March from 10am to 12 noon. The language of the workshop will be English. 

Juan del Río is an educator, author, researcher and activist, specialized in promoting alternative paradigm shifts towards a society that adapts to the biophysical limits of the planet, more connected with nature. He is currently co-director of ECOLISE.

Thus, in this online meeting we will delve into the knowledge of other forms of cultural and artistic creation and production, while exploring how art can contribute as an amplifier and detonator of processes of social transformation and relationship with the environment.

This session is part of the European project ‘Art Living Lab for Sustainability’ -promoted by Concomitentes, De Nieuwe Opdrachtgevers, La Société des Nouveaux Commanditaires-, which aims to respond to three open participation processes in Spain, France and Belgium through an artistic solution committed to the environment, nature and the environment.

We invite you to participate in this two-hour online workshop, which you can attend by filling in this form.
