EMPACT Creative Sustainability in Practice: Body Performing Nature

8-9 of July 2023 | 9am to 5pm (CET) | TALEGGIO VALLEY (BG) ITALY

We are pleased to announce this seminar in the framework of the innovative project EMPACT – Empathy and Sustainability: The Art of Thinking like a Mountain, co-funded by the EU Creative Europe Programme (Grant Agreement No: – EMPACT – CREA-CULT-2021-COOP-2). The seminar focuses on how artists and other cultural promoters implement empathic practices towards the environment in their work. Join these two days to discuss the role of empathy in the performing arts as a means to collectively reexamine the relationship between human and nature and how Art can put its creative capacity into practice towards a more sustainable cohabitation. For that, NAHR has chosen the topic of Air, inviting visual and performing artists to take inspiration from this natural element and its interconnected role in the natural and cultural ecosystems of Val Taleggio and the world. Meet the young talented artists who have let themselves be inspired by Air for the production of novel artworks #empact residencies and choreographies from Northwestern University (Chicago, USA) dancers.

The objective is to learn about model projects and pioneering initiatives that express the combination of art and ecological practices, within the framework of Empathy and Sustainability.

The seminar is organized by Nature, Art & Habitat Residency (NAHR), an EMPACT consortium partner,  and will be held in the English language.
