Human/Non-Human Interconnections in Art, Visual Culture & Everyday Life

“Art and art-based learning provides us with an alternative way of perceiving the climate crisis. It has the potential to motivate new modes of engaging with and caring for a world which is more important than ourselves. Art and art-based learning can encourage us to make new connections between living things, objects and materials,” a ViCCA student proposes.
