Season for Ex-Change
Workshop: Arts Practice as Climate Justice
A workshop for artists and arts professionals with Crested Tit Collective and Julie’s Bicycle
This practical workshop for artists and arts professionals explores what it means to approach sustainability in creative practice from a lens of climate and social justice. We will:
- explore intersectional frameworks for climate justice
- share case studies from cultural practitioners and organisations around the world
- develop principles for working towards climate justice in your own practice.
This is the first of five workshops based on the Season for Change Toolkit.
About the speakers
The Crested Tit Collective is an international community of poets working and performing across the UK and Singapore. The CTC is interested in innovative, feminist, and ecological poetics. They met on Royal Holloway’s Poetic Practice MA.
Chloë Proctor is a London-based poet. Her work is situated in response to contemporary poetic theory and is developed on RHUL’s Poetic Practice MA programme. She considers her practice to exist in the chthonic realm of involuting soil poetics [read Donna Haraway]. She is interested in interjections, clashing discourses, soil, fungus and semantic mess-making. Her work has appeared in Azimuth, the Ecology of an Ear, Alterity and Corbel Stone Press’s Contemporary Poetry Series: Nature & Language, as well as many self-published artist books. She is also a massage therapist at Kyema.
