We are Flora Gregory and Natalie Koffman: collaborators in exploring the human relationship with nature.
We are inspired and motivated in our individual and collaborative works by increasingly urgent ecological and planetary concerns, and communities around the world taking local action to protect their environments.
Nature Rights draws inspiration from the history of Human-Nature relationship, the groundswell of grassroots community environmental action and the Stop Ecocide movement.
Join us, in a rare opportunity away from everyday life, on a compelling journey through time as we unravel a story of humans’ relationship with nature from 6000 BC to the present day…. and imagine a future where Nature’s Rights are recognised.
This interactive participatory event combines visual arts, performance and dialogue. It creates a space to come together to watch, read, question, talk and listen, and imagine collectively and individually ways of living more in harmony alongside our planetary cohabitants and within planetary means.
The event is about 3.5 hours long and can also be extended to a full day. It can be adapted for different events and audiences.
Totally inspiring and brilliant.
