Interconnected in Culture for a Stronger Ecosystem
The Ard Thoulathy is composed of:
A.MAL (UK) + L’blend (Morocco) with a publishing house from Egypt
Access to land and resources is an issue that concerns us all in this time of climate catastrophe, land degradation, endangered seed sovereignty and soil degradation. But some communities are already experiencing the impacts of climate change and multinational agricultural enterprises’ rising power more than others. Moreover, post-colonial dynamics feed into the way this plays out between Southern and Northern countries. In response to these issues, we will run a co-created, cross-border skill exchange between three cultural institutions who all share these concerns and whose communities are all experiencing them. We will then disseminate this knowledge and learning with our respective communities through a series of in person workshops, which will be relevant to our specific communities.
Ard |أرض residency: Three members from each partner organization will meet to host a co-produced skill-sharing residency for each other: sharing best practices, knowledge and unique expertise over the course of a week.
Ard |أرض in practice sessions: After a period of reflection, each partner will then set up workshop sessions on local land issues for and with their respective communities, using the knowledge and skills they have developed during the residency.
