About the Event

Talk: How Creativity Can Build Resilient Communities

Date: 9 December, 11am-12pm GMT/ 3-4pm UAE

Lead by: Julie’s Bicycle and People’s Palace Projects

Speakers: Alison Tickell – Julie’s Bicycle; Thiago Jesus – People’s Palace Projects; Pirata Waura – Ulupuene Indigenous Association (NGO); Anjali Sai Chalise – Nepalese Youth for Climate Action; Shirley Djukurna Krenak – activist for Indigenous voices within the climate movement; Maheen Zia – a Karachi-based filmmaker and film editor; Marvi Mazhar – architect, Pakistan; and Dr Khalid ShamboulSaving Sudan’s Living Heritage project.

How can art and culture shape how communities build resilience in the face of climate impacts?

Join us to gain insights from artists and practitioners from Pakistan, Brazil, Egypt, and Nepal, among others. In this session, discussion, film and performance show that recognising historical patterns (including the impact of colonialism), and understanding cultural interactions, can enhance the adaptive capacity of communities and ecosystems.
