About the event
During the workshop, we will focus on the theoretical and practical exploration of the connections between climate activism and performative arts. We will delve into the topics of climate change and the loss of biodiversity from an artistic perspective, while also encouraging participants to open their senses and rediscover the world around us. Our aim is to channel all our creativity towards problem-solving and thinking about climate and nature. The participants will get an insight in how the group works creatively with climate related issues, learn methods for creative activism and delve into artistic explorations. During creative research, discussions, games and practical and theoretical explorations we will find out how creativity, combined with site specific circus, can deliver a powerful message of environmental activism.
