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.

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