A + E

Plants are our Teachers 2021 - SG.JPG

A + E is a key partner organisations in our work to create a Cathedral which is fully engaged with the climate crisis.

A+E braids the terms accident and emergency, art and ecology, art and education.  Curated by Jonathan Baxter A+E asks: how might the Cathedral become an ecological commons for the city and how might that shape a social and ecological art practice?  To that end, we are working collaboratively with a wide range of partners including artists, peer-educators, environmentalists, and the Cathedral’s eco-congregation group.

Current projects from A + E include:

  • Plants are our Teachers

A + E welcomes collaboration in all its forms.  To find out more, or to get involve or contact Jonathan Baxter here.

    What can we learn from a delicate poppy or seedhead about the art of line drawing? What can a tree teach us about simplifying complex shapes and mapping connections? What can the foliage and flowers of a dandelion teach us about working with the drama of light and shade?
