Worm is an online platform for art and ecology dedicated to the cultural conversations relating to climate change. It brings together a growing global network of practitioners working in the fertile intersections of art, science and activism, through interviews, a project database called The Wormery, and physical and online curatorial projects. Worm values accessible and interdisciplinary knowledge exchange that communicates multispecies ecological issues.
‘Worming up!’ is a workshop for creative practitioners interested in discussing and learning about the environ(mental) challenges we face in the broader context of art practice and production. Taking effective action points we use to confront ecological issues, how are they transferable to the attitudes we have towards sustaining creative practices in our difficult environment?
Worm believes that sometimes saying ‘No!’ to a negative situation is a positive action. With activities situated in the concepts of Worm’s current project ‘Refuse’, we will explore how we can recognise toxicity in our systems of production, develop resilience and imagine empowered alternatives for an environment in which sustainable creative practices may flourish.
Worm will present its online curatorial platform in this frame and encourage individuals to relate their projects and routines with these concepts. ‘Worming up!’ aims to leave participants mindful of attitudes towards the obstacles of art practice and belly-full of
