Climate Museum UK and Culture Declares Emergency present two online discussions for this year's Being Human festival, in partnership with the University of Birmingham.

‘Good Living’ parts I (12 November) and II (19 November) bring together artists, researchers and activists exploring the creative practice of Indigenous artists. Honouring the value of indigenous relationality in the time of ecological and climate crisis, the speakers will explore a sense of kinship that extends beyond human and individual relations to embrace more-than-human species of plants and other animals.

The two sessions will explore how the unlearning of our separation from nature can illuminate our experience, and challenge western binary and human-centric thought.

Climate Museum UK and CDE invite Indigenous artists from Brazil, Australia and Canada, including Camylla Alves from eco-cultural youth activists Rios de Encontro. With Dan Baron Cohen from Instituto transformance, interdisciplinary researchers including University of Birmingham’s Dr Neelambari Phalkey, as well as ethnobotanists Professor Renata Soukand and Dr. Baiba Pruse from the University of Venice.
