The Ecology of Us is a nature-based collaborative art project inviting community members to engage their senses to develop an intentional relationship with their local environment. Together, we will celebrate the everyday magnificence of the nature that surrounds us; and is us.
Over a 5-week period beginning in August, you will be given materials and guidance to enter into a deeper relationship with the nature around your home and capture a ‘sensory journal’ of your experiences, using film photography and/or another creative medium, with the invitation to share your findings in a community exhibition and celebration at the program’s conclusion.
This project is being delivered on a volunteer, non-profit basis. The participation fee covers your photography materials (camera loan, 1 roll of film and film processing, and printing of up to 5 photos) and the exhibition costs. Full and partial scholarships are available if cost is a barrier.
