Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Join Angela Chan of curatorial project, Worm: art + ecology, to investigate climate and environmental issues throughout art history and in the Barber’s collection.

How are climate and environmental issues linked to art history?

Angela will host a guided workshop on how we might view and discuss painting, sculpture and prints through the lens of environmental research and global histories. This will be done through a presentation and open discussion.

Together we’ll develop expressive and analytical skills to narrate the local and global histories of people, power and the environment. And, talk about how these experiences have shaped today’s climate issues.

This workshop is hosted over Zoom and is open to everyone, aimed at an adult audience with an interest in art or climate issues.

No prior knowledge required, just bring yourself and an open mind!
