Milton Road Library talk

In June 2020 I will be hosting a zoom talk with my fellow  collaborative artist Cathy Faithfull.  This is a brief description of what will be discussing.

"Artists Jo Tunmer and Cathy Faithfull met whilst undertaking their MA at Cambridge School of Art. On completion of their degrees the passion they shared for the changing landscape spurred them on to work collaboratively under the name ‘eARTh’. They use recycled materials to open up new dialogues that are primarily focused on climate change issues. Their current enquiry repurposes clocks and jigsaw pieces that illustrate the need for action and how time is of the essence in this climate emergency.

So much of the resistance to mitigating climate change has come from those who insist that 'society is hard to change'. The global response to this current pandemic has shown that this is actually not true. Huge changes made on how society operates have been acted upon in a matter of weeks. It is apparent that when lives and livelihoods are at stake, individuals are prepared to make sacrifices and changes in order to have a future.  So by applying this new 2020 vision it is possible for us all to accept a ‘New Normal’ where not only caring for one another is paramount, caring for the planet also becomes second nature".

Date will be announced soon.
