Session 8: Reciprocal Respiration (RR) with Sabina Sallis and Catherine Sarah Young of Multispecies Visionary Institute
Saturday 6 November 13.00-15.00
FREE, Booking essential
Sabina Sallis will be running three workshops during the Feminist School of Painting continuing the ongoing activities of the Multispecies Visionary Institute (MVI). MVI is a project that seeks to explore how creative and ecological practices can be combined to generate collective visions for flourishing futures.
The Latin root of the word inspiration, ‘inspirare’, means ‘to breathe into’. In these workshops, you are invited to consider breathing as an act of exchange with the more-than-human-world and explore the creative act of ‘breathing life’ into something.
Sabina will introduce present elements of her research into aesthetics of sustainability and sustainable land practices. Catherine Sarah Young will introduce her research and works in relation to the Australian bushfire crisis and Climate Change and invite participants to make their own ink. This will be followed by a choice of practical activity interweaved with breath exercises: either botanical ink making, free flow drawing, or the opportunity to colour-in drawings from the MVI collection of ‘the Swarms’.
Update: This was so much fun, thank you for having us!
