Lundi 7 décembre : Global South Social Movements on Climate Change.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE:

Artistes et activistes du « sud » ensemble pour une justice climatique.

Artists and activists from the global south co-create climate justice

Ouverture des portes, 19h30. Entrée libre.

Rencontre ouverte au public entre des artistes / activistes des pays dits “du sud” (Bolivie, Afrique du Sud, Inde,…). Impliqués avant tout dans une réflexion sociale, ils prennent en compte les questions liées au climat. Comme le titre l’indique, une partie des discussions aura lieu dans la langue de Shakespeare.

Présentations, projections, performances,  avec des artistes et activistes venus de loin pour porter les voix du sud.
Visitors to FOREIGN EXCHANGE at La Générale on 7 Dec 2015 will join an evening of lively presentations, installations, films, and contemporary artworks by social change makers from South America, Africa, and Asia who have come to Paris to contribute their stories to the global gathering around COP21!
Meeting artists and activists face-to-face, you will have the opportunity to participate in vibrant exchanges on grassroots responses to climate change. These diverse social change makers will share their climate change solutions and concerns from a range of global South perspectives, cultivated through experiences where the arts meet activism and transformational change.
The event unites under the core value of care.  FOREIGN EXCHANGE connects the “thinking-driven” world to a “feeling-driven” world which already exists and points to the future.  Respectful and playful, inviting non-violent interactions, visitors can expect the warmth of a nest and the joy of creative engagement.
Developed organically as an experimental cooperation between the Eroles, TierrActiva and JungleHouse collectives, and without single curatorial input, the collaborators interact across diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise.  Each personally explores the different experiences in socially mitigating climate change in their region. Each is open to sharing this with visitors in a simple, direct way.
