Eco-murals: Bringing the biodiversity crisis to our city centres
Event schedule details
Saturday 9 October
Event location details
Imperial College London
Scientists and artists discuss their work and the role public art can play in bringing a community together to take action against human-induced mass extinction of life on Earth.
This month a series of murals will appear in city centres across the UK conveying the idea that human beings are responsible for the sixth great mass extinction faced by life on Earth. In this session, Imperial ecologist Will Pearse and two of the contributing artists, Bryony Benge-Abbott and Michelle Meola, discuss the outcomes of this year’s Grantham Art Prize, and how grassroots arts projects can benefit biodiversity at a local scale.
The Grantham Art Prize saw scientists and artists across the country paired together with local community groups to produce these public art murals. Find out more about their experiences of collaboration, the importance of protecting biodiversity and the power of public art in communicating messages.
