Thinking Nature’s Sacred Sites

November 9 - November 22

This is an online event.

Take part in an open call to engage with the archive images of sacred sites by artist Monica Sjöö. Capture your creative ideas through poetry, creative writing, drawings, photography or collage making on the theme of Nature’s sacred sites. Embrace the idea that when we create, we can make positive change in our own lives and in the world around us.

A sacred site does not necessarily need an ancient history to deserve its sanctity, it can be somewhere in the here and now that marks out a memory, it can be as simple as a hand drawn map. Sacred is often an intimately personal concept and a gentle spring welling up at the end of your local lane can be as sacred to you, as any more renowned location. The politics of place as well as the stories and songs of sites we hold in our hearts are there to share. People are still drawn back to sacred places today and the belief and ritual that surround them, be this the site of an ancient tree, well, or roadside shrine. The artist Monica Sjoo was inspired to make drawings and paintings of her personal journeys to ancient sites emphasising our deep connection to nature and our need to live in harmony with her. You can take a look at her work here.

Please share your creative ideas at 64 Million Artists from Monday 9 November. To find out more about the open call visit dothinkshare.com
