A Metaceptive project in partnership with the international conference ‘Human Migration and the Environment:
Futures, Politics and Invention’ at Durham University 28th June – 1st July 2015 www.climigration.eu
Popular ideas of climate change rarely connect with migration even though migration is probably the largest human consequence of climate change. The creative work presented here moves on from often didactic climate-art approaches from a decade ago without ducking strong critiques, and harnesses fresh perspectives from migrants and global voices.
Artists and activists at all levels from internationally acclaimed to local and emerging, and from countries including Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Iran, Brazil and Australia are involved. Footprint Modulation culminates in a fantastic weekend of public performance, film screenings and discussions involving artists, activists, performers, community members and researchers, and which dovetails neatly into the final conference at Durham University.
Preview and launch event at Durham Art Gallery, Thurs 4th June 6pm – 8pm
