Recap: "Migration, Climate Justice & The Power of Stories" at the Southbank Centre, in partnership with Counterpoints Art
Climate Spring in partnership with Counterpoints Art presented in-coversation event "Migration, Climate Justice & The Power of Stories".
We were delighted to co-host 'Climate Justice & The Power of Stories' at the Southbank Centre, in partnership with Counterpoints Arts.
This salon explored the intersection of migration and climate justice through the lens of artistic practice and the works of artists and guests who harness the power of storytelling.
By bringing into a conversation visionary guests and artists, it explores approaches that shine a light on new narratives uncovering the intricate connections between migration and environmental justice.
Participants included Alinah Azadeh, Dhaqan Collective, Lena Dobrowolska, Teo Ormond-Skeaping and Gaia Vince.
Throughout, participants engaged in thought-provoking discussions centred on the following critical questions:
Climate displacement: How do we acknowledge and respond to the unique and disproportionate impact of climate change on women, and on people on the move?
Regenerative language: How can we champion and bring forward a language of inclusivity and hope that recognises the tireless efforts of artists, activists and policymakers dedicated to equity, justice, and decolonization? How do we ensure our language and storytelling reflects the world we are trying to move into, not just the world we want to move away from?
Weaving cooperation: What innovative strategies can we foster to bring diverse voices together to nurture cooperation, collaboration and solidarity?
The salon was chaired by Lucy Stone (Climate Spring) and Dijana Rakovic (Counterpoints Arts).
