kl. 18.00-18.20 Presentation “Forest immersion: More than Human Storytelling”
Join us for a demonstration of our project: “Forest immersion: More than Human Storytelling”. During the festival, we will present the project we created in our course ‘Perspectives on Climate Change: Ecopsychology, Art and Narratives’ where we took participants with us on an immersive nature experience. We first met our four ‘characters’ and imagine their experiences through storytelling in order to encourage understanding community in the more-than-human and develop a connection with the forest. We then guided a collective poetry session focused on the themes of our story to encourage creativity and reflection of our experience.

kl. 18.25-19.00 Poetry workshop
Welcome to the collective poetry session! Only things you need for the session are an open mind and a wish to create art together. You don’t need to have any experience in poetry to participate. The theme of the session is our relations to environment and nature. In the poetry session we use very simple writing method and all the equipment for writing are available for participants. Maximum of 10 participants. Organized by: Juni, Marie, Alexa and Gustavo.
