Re-imagining is a practice of hope needed to sustain our planet. The first step is to reflect on the ways we have storied our belonging and connections to the natural world. Stories that call the land a resource — or privilege human-made hierarchies — need transformation into narratives that inspire responsible ways of relating with the natural world.
In this five-session workshop, participants will engage with the practice of “re-storying” through writing and illustration exercises. In each session, participants will re-imagine narratives that encourage reciprocal relationships with the natural world and those who inhabit it. At the end of the workshop, participants’ creative work will be showcased in a collective online publication.
This workshop is for YOU if you’re interested in:
- exploring connection with the natural world through a creative lens
- storytelling and story sharing
- playful community-making
These sessions will be led by Andrea Vela Alarcón, from the Abya Yala rainforest territory, currently known as the Peruvian Amazon. Andrea is an artist and community educator interested in facilitating spaces of critical conversations on ecological survival.
