Reflecting on the ecological perils of today, many women artists have raised awareness of environmental issues, their work serving as a platform to imagine a more equitable and sustainable future. This presentation features work by women artists from the ecofeminism of the 1970s to the present day, exploring their approaches to the land with an emphasis on interconnection.

Online broadcasts will feature ASL translation. Auto-captions are available if you watch the lecture with Zoom.

If you are unable to watch the lecture live it will remain posted on our Facebook page. It will also be recorded, closed captioning added and then posted here by the end of April.

Free, everyone welcome! Zoom link: or watch with Facebook Live.
