The ARIAS coalition Climate Imaginaries at Sea invites you to Studio Encounters on Water, a two-day event filled with workshops, presentations, talks and pod reading sessions where you can learn more about what we’ve done, where we are going and how you can be part of it.
Who has the privilege to imagine the future of climate change, and for whom are its effects already present? In three artistic research studios, Climate Imaginaries at Sea speculates possible futures in and around water through various artistic and participatory research practices, taking the following questions as a starting point:
How can artists create connections to indigenous and global South climate knowledges across multiple cultural perspectives where the consequences of rising sea levels are already a reality?
How can we understand the impact of rising sea levels in relation to housing, clothing and soil through material artistic research?
And how can interspecies imaginaries help form different relationships with rising seas beyond considering them as merely a threat?
As author Amitav Ghosh points out, “the climate crisis is also a crisis of the imagination.” Imagining the future of climate change is crucial for accepting change, whether in our personal lives, environment or politics.
Join us on this journey of reflection, research and imagination around the future of water.
