The new date for the Awne workshop session, that was cancelled 27 October, is 7 November 16:00-19:00 CET.
For practical reasons we decided to hold it online, and all who are interested can join it on Zoom. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and get the Zoom link.
Awne is an approach to art-making where natural farming, agroforestry, Buddhism, cosmo-centric farming, biocultural systems, forest gardening and biomimicry meet sound and art. By looking at different ways of positioning yourself as nature (instead of in nature) you can take a different approach to your own practice. By exploring and applying Awne you can increase your awareness of different processes that occur around us, the complexity of these processes, the sustainability of your practice and your place as nature.
The session on 7 November will be mapping out contemporary theories about ecology, and discussing foraging, fermentation, sustainable food diets, preservation and their social and cultural roles.
