Improving our connections and sense of belonging to Nature

by Fred Adam & Geert Vermeire, drawings by Chari Cámara
A set of practices during the week of 18 March – 22 March, meant to open our senses and feeling the beauty of Nature, acknowledging the intelligence of the more than human world, listening to the polyphony of languages, interactions and connections going on around us and with us. We belong to the natural world and we are part of it. Intelligence is not only ours, it is the result of millions of years of evolution. Our ability to develop a greater intimacy with nature is a powerful way to expand our sense of belonging, a shared identity and our love for people because we are all Nature.

These practices train artists in ecological intelligence and were developed in the frame of the Creative Europe project No One Forgotten – the Art of Connection, now presented for the first time at The Walking Body 5 / WALC Walking Arts and Local Communities.
