This one day event explores the Rights of Nature from the perspectives of artistic practices, indigenous knowledge and activist engagements in the Americas. Drawing from lived and theoretical frameworks that de-privilege the human and recognize the agency of non-human entities, the conference addresses a core debate between the understanding of ecological rights deriving from legal and evidentiary frameworks and those grounded in experiential and situated struggle.
Speakers include: Subhankar Banerjee, Ursula Biemann , Eduardo Abaroa, Fernando Palma Rodríguez, Mabe Bethônico and Ala Plastica. Guest speakers include Jean Fisher, Elizabeth Peredo and Brian Holmes.
Readings of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) Summary Report for Policymakers will take place throughout the day. A performative intervention devised by artist Amy Balkin.
Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
