Sustaining Resilience: Land Rights and the Politics of Conservation

25 Mar 2023 2-5pm


Join us for a live conversation delving into the relationship between conservation and land rights, highlighting different modes of relating to land and the urgency of centring reparative approaches.

This event will bring together artists and researchers to share perspectives on relations with land and modes and meaning of conservation. From work that reflects upon the violence of colonial models and the oppression those modes impose on indigenous knowledges, to methodologies of working with land that sustain resilience.

Contributors include artists Marwa Arsanios and Youngsook Choi, and curator Khanyisile Mbongwa.

We’ll begin with offerings from contributors, followed by a round table discussion with participants - including local groups working with land rights, access and conservation. There will be tea and food to share during the event.

This event is a collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary, Primary and The Mosaic Rooms.
