AELA is excited to announce that members of the AELA Earth Arts Collective and Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology are hosting a National “Voices of Nature” Exhibition at “Vacant Assembly” in Brisbane from 15-18 October 2020.
‘Voices of Nature 2020’ aims to encourage the exploration of the concepts of voice, standing, representation, and agency of the natural world within human governance systems. Rights of Nature is grounded in the recognition that humanity is just one member of the wider Earth community, and that we have evolved with, and are dependent upon, a healthy, interconnected web of life on Earth.
Voices of Nature 2020 brings together acoustic ecology and visual art communities to explore ways of representing nature’s voice(s). The exhibition is part of the biennial Rights of Nature week, hosted by the Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA) and is presented in partnership with the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology (AFAE). Other events celebrating the Rights of Nature week include AELA’s International Earth Laws Conference – “Earth Laws Asia Pacific: Earth, Sea, Fire, Spirit” (October 14 -16) the Australian Peoples’ Tribunal for Community and Nature’s Rights, (October 17) and the Voices of Nature Public Lecture Series, being hosted from August to October 2020.
