Beyond Conservation:

Bridging Art & Science to Protect the Amazon Rainforest

Studio Verde is coordinating Art and Science residencies in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, in partnership with the Amazon Center  for Environmental Education and Research (ACEER) and the Amazon Aid Foundation.  

These Artist in Residence (AIR) programs integrate involvement with Indigenous communities and in-depth lectures and workshops led by local specialists in the scientific field.  They provide a meeting point where participants can investigate and challenge their creative practices in a stimulating environment. 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. Bringing international and local artists together in an immersive Art & Science program in the Peruvian Amazon provides participants an opportunity to form a deep understanding of the challenges of Indigenous communities and conservation practices faced in the Amazon rainforest. 
 
 Artists and scientists have long looked to nature for inspiration, and the subsequent innovations have led to great leaps forward in culture, society, and technology. Collaboration between the arts and sciences creates new knowledge, ideas, and methods beneficial to both fields. Artists are known to be creative problem solvers and are able to disseminate complex topics in an approachable way to a broad audience to help protect the Indigenous communities and the Amazon rainforest.
