Program Information

School:The Banff Centre
Faculty:Visual Arts
Degree:Not Applicable
Field of Study:Visual and Performing Arts, Other
Description:Earthed explores visual art practices that shed light on planetary processes and concerns. Such artistic practices may operate on the margins of the typical systems of art production and exchange. These practices may employ art as a conduit to engage with environmental issues including regenerative living, habitat loss and degradation, climate breakdown, biodiversity, adaptation, and more.

This program investigates the confluence of ethics and aesthetics in search of alternative structures to raise cultural and political awareness of urgent environmental issues. Led by artists Ackroyd & Harvey, whose work intersects art, activism, architecture, biology, ecology and history, this residency will also include engagements with local scientists, biologist, and ecologists.
