What kind of role can art and its methods play in just sustainability transformations? ‘Seeds for Solidarity’ sows seeds for global climate justice through supporting creative collaborations around sustainability that challenge Westernized ways of knowing and doing.
Seeds for solidarity project encourages discussion with a diversity of voices and perspectives in the Nordics, and beyond, on how how to build liveable futures for all.
Finland-based organization Punos Arts & Research has invited the project partners Indigenous Climate Futures Embassy (Sápmi, Arctic and Aotearoa), the collective S.U.R. (Latin America and Finland), and curator Hung-Fei Wu (Taiwan) to create the programme.
Punos was initiated in 2020 by two curator-researchers, Anna-Kaisa Koski and Ki Nurmenniemi, who are based out of Helsinki, Finland. Together with artists, cultural workers, and research communities, Punos weaves more just and livable futures. In Punos’ work, the arts and scientific research nurture each other. Doing things together and supporting collaborative work are integral to ecologically and socially sustainable culture.
