Artists Environmental Justice Now

Wednesday 1 May 10:00 until 18:00
Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, University of Sussex
Part of the series: CWEH Activists and Academia Forum events

Artists Environmental Justice NowAnthropocene: How does the concept relate to climate change and to environmental history? How do artists engage with climate justice? What does art contribute to environmental studies? Which scholarly resources of environmental history, can artists engage with?

Contemporary art practitioners invited to this event represent latest interpretations of [Socially] Engaged Art Practice, and realise their work in the form of Site Specific [Art] Placement. This practice involves non-artists and non-art, and does not always end up with the conventional image or art object in an art exhibition as an outcome.

This conjuncture of Anthropocene and nexus of environmental-art-activism, will be explored in a series of presentations, performances, spoken word delivery, display and a small group workshop in a day at the Gardner Tower, organised by the CWEH-activists and academia forum, University of Sussex.
