Very exciting news!
Together with artist and project manager of Imp@ct mining Dana Finch, I am launching the cross-sectoral arts hub Deep Earth Synergies in Cornwall, UK. Deep Earth Synergies serves as the nodal link between the mining industry, science, society and the arts. We are dedicated to foster innovative ways of interaction, communication and action in the mining sector for transformation and change. The arts hub will bring people together and put the arts at the forefront of the mine. Based on arts thinking methodologies as coined by Amy Whitaker in 2016 and on collaborative strategies, we will foster new ways of producing knowledge through participatory spaces of dialogue, experimentation and embodied experiences. Deep Earth Synergies will set in motion unique artists-in-mining programs, workshops, podcasts and more. Stay tuned!
