Karma Motion Workshops at the Global Environments Summer Academy - GESA, University of Oxford and the Global Environments Network
We conduct one-week long workshops on multi-modal medias and participatory audio visual methods as part of the wider curriculum created for the Global Environments Summer Academy (GESA) that takes place, each year at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford. GESA is a peer-to-peer learning platform providing emerging environmental leaders who are concerned about human dimensions of environmental challenges with networking opportunities, communication skills and a venue for cutting-edge multidisciplinary reflection.
A focus to interact with environmental change-makers is rooted in our conviction that we must engage creatively with a broad but also with the right public in order to catalyse reflection, debate and interest in cultural landscapes. An oblique approach, require audiences to reflect deeply about the topic, to engage with narratives that are not given or overt, by generating a productive dialogue among a trans-disciplinary cohort of scientists, artists and environmental advocates.
