We’re hosting artist, gardener and writer Sean Roy Parker on Thursday 25 January to explore ‘Regenerative Art Practices in the Climate Crisis’ for our first Metal New Artist Session of 2024. Book a free ticket here.
Regenerative Art Practices in the Climate Crisis
Artist, gardener and writer Sean Roy Parker leads this session on making changes to the way we conduct our creative practices while remaining authentic, collaborative and inquisitive. The talk considers the socio-economic pressures of being an eco-responsible artist, and invites us to try radical transparency when considering materials, labour and audiences. Roy asks “Why does art need to exist indefinitely when we don’t have a forever secured?”

He practises slow, low-tech crafts and food preservation with consumer waste and natural abundances, and shares extensively through labour exchange, favours and artswaps.
