Salon #2: Ecology & Art

Atlanta Artist Meetup: Ecology & Art Edition

Following a mini presentation covering various artists/ projects connected to Ecology, will be open discussion & making art out of trash and found materials!

As usual, you are welcome to bring a project to work on, something to sketch, or something to share. 

A few topics to consider:
How can art contribute to healing, subverting climate change, undoing damage?
Does art matter within ecology?
What do artists bring to ecology, as problem solvers? artists? activists?
consumption & capitalism
art that raises awareness
art that is outside of the capitalist paradigm
art that solves environmental problems in communities
where do movements like ecofeminism and art intersect? 
Where does art align with ecology to give voice to and impact change for people who have been historically and systemically discriminated against?
social justice + environmental justice + art

Please note: All people and identities are welcome to this edition! 

*Repurposed and found materials will be provided for art making, but feel free to bring your own materials to repurpose.

*bring your own wine / donation-based drinks available*
