MYTHS FOR A WETLANDS IMAGINARY
Walthamstow, London / Residency and Exhibition


Developed through a residency at Walthamstow Wetlands Centre, Myths for a Wetlands Imaginary is a performative inquiry into global wetlands loss and an exploration of resistant wetland imaginaries, in collaboration with Arts Catalyst

The project considers approaches to the ecological crisis that has led to the loss of up to 75% of the world’s wetlands, against the backdrop of Walthamstow Wetlands. Through a collective process of producing maps, stories and myths, the artists wish to develop a ‘global wetlands imaginary’ as an ecological imaginative space for human and non-human co-existence, and as a metaphor for new forms of multispecies solidarity.

The project builds on ;a place, of their own.’s work with Arts Catalyst exploring ideas of decolonisation, borders, geopower and extraction.

SOCIAL ART SUMMIT / SHEFFIELD


a place of their own are delighted to be running one of the labs at the Social Art Summit in Sheffield 1st/2nd November 18. www.socialartsummit.com
Family Entanglements seeks to explore through an active workshop based on the game Cat's Cradle,
a) How might the 'family' be a site of resistance to dominant ideologies as well as of imagining collective alternative futures, through different kinds of collectivity, by thinking beyond 'family' to kinship / more than human / non-biologically based conceptions.
b) how living with and raising children, and the various relations and encounters that are enabled, creates the potential for criticality, radicality and resistance, and how it might offer ways to think about alternative futures in the face of economic, social and environmental crisis, and what kinds of artistic practice are enabled.
