MEMBRA Objectives of The Walking Forest
Walking Forest https://www.walkingforest.co.uk/ is a ten-year artwork taking place in sites across the UK exploring the links between activism, forest ecology and community. It will culminate in 2028 with the planting of an Intentional Forest in the UK to honour Earth Defenders from around the world and to act as a place of remembrance for the loss of biodiversity and forests worldwide.
For the MEMBRA project the four lead artists will be working across the team, pairing up with scientists to co-create mixed media outputs that communicate and enhance the cultural understanding and reach of the research. The artists will also be working with the theme of memory in both human and more than human realms, co-creating new stories and myths and exploring a wide variety of creative outputs coming from the research questions and emerging results.
