ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The Art Exhibition is part of AELA's Bi-Annual Rights of Nature Celebration, RONA18 – “Rights of Nature Australia 2018” – which has been designed to promote cultural engagement with the emerging, global, Rights of Nature movement, and to celebrate the Australian Peoples' Tribunal for Community and Nature's Rights, which is being held on Saturday 27th October 2018 at Banco Court in Brisbane.
AELA’s intention is to blend the creative re-interpretation of environmental governance with cultural responses to the rights of the natural world to exist, thrive and evolve.
CONNECTING WITH THE THEMES OF THE
2018 PEOPLES TRIBUNAL ON COMMUNITY AND NATURE'S RIGHTS
The Art Exhibition will connect with the themes of the 2018 Peoples Tribunal, which is examining the impact of industrialised agriculture on the Rights of Nature. The Exhibition will feature works from artists investigating themes of agency, in relation to existing and future food production and distribution systems. These works will reveal, reflect and critique the current flaws in the western legal system that are disabling us from making purposeful choices and taking action to support the transition to earth-centred governance. The exhibition will also record and celebrate the transformations taking place that are assisting us. Read more about the 2018 Australian Peoples’ Tribunal.
