New Writing: Queer River and Creative Engagements with Ecologies of Place

‘Artist James Aldridge shares insights from Iain Biggs’ and Mary Modeen’s book Creative Engagements with Ecologies of Place and resonances with his own projects exploring the value of outsiders’ viewpoints and voices not often heard in discussions on the Earth Crisis’

Follow this link to have a read of this new piece I was invited to write for the Climate Cutures site: Queer River and Creative Engagements with Ecologies of Place.

‘In this time of ecological collapse and climate breakdown, it is tempting to charge about ‘taking action’, but there are many kinds of action that are needed. Perhaps counterintuitively, when individuals and organisations around us are declaring an emergency, we need opportunities to slow down and to notice the reality of the situation we are living in, taking time to learn from human and non-human others with whom we share our locality. For me, that is what my arts practice, and Queer River specifically, is for.’
