Bridging Art and Science to protect the Amazon Rainforest
Studio Verde is curating Art and Science residencies in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, in partnership with the Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Research (ACEER), the Amazon Aid Foundation and the The Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA)
SEPTEMBER PROGRAMME 2022
Beyond Conservation Artist in Residence programme in the Peruvian Amazon integrates involvement with Indigenous communities and in-depth lectures and workshops led by local specialists in the scientific field. Through critique and collaborative engagement, participants explore ways to understand, represent and arrive at creative solutions to the issues facing Amazonia.
Its interdisciplinary approach combines artists’ unique abilities to transcend language, race, sexual orientation, and socio-economic barriers with scientists’ unique skills to collect and translate data that deepens our understanding of the natural world.
September 2022 AIR programme will run in Camino Verde reforestation center in the Madre de Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon.
