Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

LABVERDE aims to help cultural makers understand and reflect on one of the main natural areas of the planet. The journey starts with a boat trip and it gets deeper in an ecological reserve in the heart of the Amazon region, allowing a selected group of artists to explore different scales and perspectives of the rainforest along with the mediation of specialists in arts, philosophy, biology, ecology and natural science. Life experience and theory will be integrated into 10 days of intensive activities. A schedule of expeditions, lectures, workshops, presentations and seminars will enhance creativity, having nature as a common ground. Among other themes, the participants will find out about landscape representation, nature art appropriation, innovative solutions for a sustainable economy, climate change and environmental impacts, forest sonority, wild edible plants, entomology and dendrochronology in the Amazon. The network exchanges and the knowledge sets throughout the program will be an opportunity to develop innovative cultural content.
