Web Art Garden 2018
WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY, June 5th, 2018
This year, as always, we invite events for World Environment day from around the world.
The aim of Web Art Garden is to enable a wide range of movement-based, artistic, cultural and environmental activities to take place at different locations around the world on 5th June, marking World Environment Day.
Web Art Garden was conceived by Suprapto Suryodarmo and originally developed by Sandra Reeve and colleagues of theirs. So its roots are in non-stylised movement and in dance. But Web Art Garden events may take any movement-based form, including:
Performance, theatre, ritual, exhibition, singing, presentation, installation, poetry, writing, lecture, meditation and prayer, discussion, video, photography, film.
Web Art Garden is open to individuals, groups, organizations and institutions alike. Each participant or group of participants will create an event in their region, which reflects their approach to nature and creativity/environmental art/ecology and culture.
The regular celebration of World Environment Day each year on 5th June has been created with this in mind: to encourage creative expression and understanding of one's own culture and ecology as one of the factors which will facilitate healthy and confident collaboration between cultures.
After each event we collect and publish photos, video and written reflections from these events. See the sidebar for a record of previous events. Images and writing from 2017 can be found here.
To participate in 2018 events, please e-mail us with details of what you are planning (location, type of event, open to others or not, timings, etc): firstname.lastname@example.org - we will list all events here.
Afterwards, send us any documentation of your project so that we can post it on the website as a testimony to the day’s activities. Text, blogs and images (still or video) are all welcome, but do contact us first if you’re thinking of submitting large or complex files so we can discuss formats.
Whatever happens, happens because we created it.
