Republic of Learning – Atmospheric Commons Workshop

The workshop will explore our past and present impacts on the Earth's atmosphere - personally, locally and globally. We then seek to imagine whatever comes next… making artistic/craft based responses that combine scientific data with our own questions and stories about the future.

The day was split into two sessions – the morning session focused on writing for voice, the afternoon session on writing about the artwork of others. Though the two are intertwined this meant we could work with both writing as practice and writing on practice.
