At The Hinterland
a cooperative creative (pr)axis shift
On November 8, 2021, as a part of the international art and activism during the COP26 meeting in Glasgow, Scotland, the COP26 Coalition hosted a virtual event, At the Hinterland: a cooperative creative (pr)axis shift as a part of the Global People's Summit.
The event emerged into three segments. First, literary and media artists Madeline Bassnett, Jennifer Calkins, Teresa Carmody, Anne de Marcken, Molly Fitzjarrald, and Summer J. Hart wove together words, sounds, video and images to draw and hold participants in a space reflecting our climate and our relationships to the other than human.
Then, Anastasia Maier led participants in a somatic practice to integrate the impact of the first moment and prepare for participation in the third moment.
The event ended with collaborative, embodied, communal creation led by Lou Florez drawing from the evocations of the performance toward protection, connection and energy.
