Diverse Ways of Knowing Nature: Speak for the Bees Wrap-up
Artist Video Showcase Wrap up for the Speak for the Bees series with project facilitator Jennifer Marshman.
Beyond formal presentations, lectures, peer reviewed journal articles, and popular media, there are diverse ways to engage ourselves with the natural world around us. Every day we hear more about the many ecological crises on the planet. Most recently we have seen how human activity is diminishing the health of ecosystems and wildlife populations which helps to create the conditions for the emergence of infectious diseases such as COVID-19. This video showcase will explore how artists use different mediums to express their personal relationships with nature. These diverse approaches can help us to understand that we all have unique and meaningful ways of connecting and engaging with nature.
