Watch 4 short videos about how we setup and ran
the first phase of the Carbon_Dating project (2021-23)
By also sponsoring the planting of small indigenous grassland areas, we are fostering living sites for our art experiments; as we build a campaign via partnerships built on respect, care, and the dissolving of old ‘us and them’ hierarchies.
Our aim is to ask, how can we better seed ‘consensual’ relationships framed by our shared need to breathe each others ‘exhaled’ air. How can we walk alongside grasses, together into a sustained, long future?
Carbon Dating's intention and commitment is to include and be led by First Nations perspectives and learnings: by engaging with FN artists and community throughout the process in each location/site. We also acknowledge there is more work to be done in this space as the project progresses.
