Broto is hosting three working groups to have monthly discussions, via Zoom, on topics related to the intersection of art and science. The first, “Collaboration Blueprint,” began on January 13th, at 3 p.m. But there is still “Pro-Nature Culture,” starting Tuesday, January 19th, at 3 p.m., which aims to answer the question, “If behavior change is required in a climate-friendly society, how do we affect culture?” as well as “Bank of Nature,” starting Wednesday, January 20th, at 3 p.m., on the subject “How do we ensure Nature gets a fair deal through an ‘Interactive, not Extractive’ society?” Email [email protected] to join.
Broto: Art-Climate-Science is holding a virtual conference, “Affinity,” on two Saturdays, December 5th and December 12th. The topic: exploring the nature-society partnership in the Anthropocene epoch. There are six virtual sessions over the two days: On December 5th, “Affinity: Between Art and Science,” “Bank of Nature,” and “Symbiosis: Art’s Knowledge of Nature”; on December 12th, “Interaction, Not Extraction,” “Business-Nature-Policy,” and “Denatured/Renatured.”
There is also an accompanying online art gallery, “Symbiosis,” featuring art by Renata Buziak, Anna Fine Foer, Juniper Harrower, and others. Registration for the conference is free at broto.eco.
