Art Immersion Program in the Amazon
International Deadline: February 18, 2019 –
Labverde: Art Immersion Program in the Amazon was created to strengthen
the limits of art through a broad array of experiences, knowledge sets
and cultural perspectives involving art, science and nature. The
program’s main goal is to promote artistic creation through a
constructive debate about environmental issues generated by both theory
and life experiences in the Amazon rainforest.
The program was developed in association with Manifesta Art and
Culture and The National Institute for Amazonian Research. Designed by a
multidisciplinary team of highly qualified specialists in art,
philosophy, biology, ecology and natural science, LABVERDE aims to allow
a deep understanding of the Amazon region.
Exploring the Amazon rainforest, discovering the richness of its
biodiversity and understanding its importance for the planet’s
ecological balance will foster an analytical and critical perspective of
issues such as landscape interpretation, nature representation, and the
role of art in engaging social-ecological behavior.
