workshop for Metropolis

This workshop was a collaboration between perma-culturist and visual artist Jette Hye Jin Mortensen and climate-activist and visual artist Signe Vad.

Jette Hye Jin Mortensen introduced to some interactive life design tools for a more sustainable livelihood, working together in pairs and as a group. Besides there were an introduction to Permaculture ethics and principles and how to translate them to cultural work.

Signe invited the participants into an eco-systemic freedom fight, presenting her poetic sense-based resistance movement called Death to the Death Star. Here, the gentle body is connecting to other species as embedded in the ecosystem. Bringing to the surface internal/external dialog, questioning and reflecting on agency, courage and when the decisive moment to act arises.
