As part of the symposium “The Only Lasting Truth is Change”, Lars Holdhus has been running a workshop on Awne, stretching over five sessions in September–November.
On 27 October at 18:00 CET we invite you to a live session in Bergen Kjøtt, mapping out contemporary theories about ecology, and discussing foraging, fermentation, sustainable food diets, preservation and their social and cultural roles.
Awne is an approach to art making where natural farming, agroforestry, buddhism, cosmocentric 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 workshop is free, but registration is required. Please send an email to email@example.com to sign up for the live session or to get a link for the web stream.
