Creative Fellowship workshops

Had a very productive and inspiring time in my first visit to Penryn campus as part of an Environmental Justice Creative Fellowship with Prof Clare Saunders. We hosted a series of zooms called ‘Diverse Voices’ between students and staff in Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the UK, which instigated some fascinating conversations in response to questions about Environmental Justice which were selected by participants. You can see some recordings, images and text about the workshops here: https://www.artsandcultureexeter.co.uk/news/diverse-voices-international-conversations-exploring-environmental-justice

Another workshop ‘Wicked Patterns and Sticky Maps’ explored questions around what constitutes deep forms of environmental justice using patterns of ideas and mapping. It was an experimental process with a small group of staff which I am still refining in preparation for a larger event this May. Some pics below.

And most excitingly, we are in discussions about a large wall artwork – a drawing – which I am planning to make on site this summer!
