Some Of Us Did Not Die
An exhibition of new works by POC artists responding to the theme of biodiversity, racial justice and environmental justice, generated through an artist residency on the ONCA Barge and curated by Imani Robinson.
Remembrance Day for Lost Species (or Lost Species Day, or RDLS), 30 November, established in 2011, is a chance each year to explore the stories of extinct and critically endangered species, cultures, ways of life and ecological communities. ONCA has been one of the lead organisations supporting RDLS from the outset. However, the ways in which biodiversity loss is presented in mainstream discussions are often dominated by white-western narratives and exclusionary of people of colour. This project is part of an effort to improve ONCA’s articulation of the links between biodiversity loss, environmental injustice and racism.
