Climate Museum UK is a mobile and digital museum creatively stirring and collecting responses to the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
These two online forums will explore the Climate Museum's Virtual Reality (VR) art program, led by young people in both the UK and Brazil, and are inspired by 'Traditional Ecological Knowledge' - a field of study in anthropology describing indigenous and other traditional knowledge of local resources. The work explores the ways in which art can help us to re-connect with nature, by exploring the nature wisdom embedded in the philosophy of indigenous cultures.
The first forum on 12th November will focus on the art making processes, and the second forum on the 19th November will explore the work in relation to current academic research.
Both forums will be jointly led by young people in Brazil and the UK, in collaboration with artists and academics, and with opportunities for interaction from the forum's audience members.
