Event description


If you are around Venice on the 28th of September, please join us. We are celebrating a Convening, a gathering of different voices and ways of thinking about the tools, laws, actions, and experiences we need to discuss and take into account in order to generate change. The day will be structured as a series of interviews with experts, scientists, artists, musicians, and activists on the tools we need to perform better. Performing is a better word that doing. Performing includes the body, and it includes the Ocean itself as a performer.

The motive of the day: to think how the language that presents us with separate worlds of interests and realms creates a barrier to reflect on the fact that are all living in the same defenceless planet.

- Chus Martínez

Commissioned and produced by TBA21–Academy. Supported by Art Institute, FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel.
