Sunday, 25 October 2015 from 13:00 to 15:00 (GMT)

Bee Keeping Scan

The workshop led by Rebecca Beinart (Primary Nottingham) is an opportunity to discuss how nature and the rural can be articulated through art, and the ways that our cultural framing of nature changes the way we act upon it. It will focus on:

  • Changing cultural perceptions/cultural framings of Nature & the Rural – looking at artworks/texts and images from different times and places
  • How our understanding/framing of nature effects the way we behave within/upon it, including looking at texts, images, ‘natural’ objects
  • Thinking about catagorisation and the ways that different philosophies place humans at the centre of/outside of/within ‘Nature’
