Building Imaginaries of Hope & Inclusivity in Tackling Climate Change: ESG & Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2022 collaboration
ESG and Art By Children initiative of Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2022 organised interactive, informative, introspective and insightful workshops to help build wellsprings of collective imaginaries and hope to triumph over disempowering anxieties of prevailing climate crises.
Floods, droughts, forest fires, heatwaves, caused by climate change, are wreaking havoc globally. But the extractivist and socio-economically unjust paradigm of ‘development’ which caused the crisis, is relentlessly pursued. Policies and politics cause strife amidst us when communities in every village, town, city, state, country and the entire world need to come together guided by values of compassion, celebrating diversities and embracing ecocentrism. We struggle to hold on to sandy beaches of security as waves of our past actions impact our futures.
Over the past 25 years, Environment Support Group (Bangalore) has been dealing with this paradox and is working with multiple communities across India to build collectivised imaginaries of transformations to justice and sustainability.
The workshop was open to students, fishers, farmers, artisans, parents, teachers, lecturers, lawyers, journalists, academics, officials, artists, judges, corporate representatives… and just about anyone who wanted to engage about our common futures through the medium of art and conversations.
This way we could imagine meaningful outcomes to ensure a safe, secure, and inclusive Planet is there for all and for all times to come!
