LMO is a 2.5 week course, a workshop/conference program designed to engage participants globally to develop location based artworks.

It calls upon all creative practitioners, students and researchers with an interest in the landscape, and in outdoor creative or educative practices.

The focus is on using locative media technologies and other collaborative tools to codesign projects concentrating on a number of key themes – water, climate change, ecosystems health and deep time. The program is open for beginners or advanced creators and researchers of all fields and disciplines.

A collaboration between Treecreate and Supercluster, hosted by the University of Canberra’s Centre for Applied Water Science.
The Meeting of the Waters: Locative Media Oceania program is designed as a creative response to the themes of water, connection and climate change to explore how locative media can be used to understand these issues, in a collaborative approach engaging science and local knowledge.

The program gives attention to experiential and horizontal learning through the creation of location-based content in interdisciplinary teams, drawing from collaborative practices and alternative forms of (outdoors) education.
It builds on the very successful Earthlings Locative Media Summer School hosted by King’s College London in collaboration with Supercluster in July 2020.

Participants need to be available between 18 Sept – 4 Oct, follow the organised online activities for around two hours a day, as well as dedicate about one hour a day to group activity (self-organised).
Parts of the program are pre-recorded and involve self-study.

You can sign up to participate at Supercluster: http://www.supercluster.eu/waters

Walking arts today became a response to the deep environmental global crisis we are facing today. Walking is one of the keys to contextualize and deepen our understanding and relation with the planet place we live on. It is more and more clear that the future will be ecological or there will not be a future for our species. Walking our planet is the opportunity to explore this question.

Artists and researchers are taking a closer look at our relation with the planet, with technology as a mediator, and some are putting locative media at the center of an adjusted framework for doing so.
