Untaming the Urban 2018

TransArts Alliance is really excited to announce that we will be collaborating with Untaming the Urban to support the 2018 symposium at The Fenner School of Environment & Society at the Australian National University.

Since the first symposium in 2016, a number of projects have emerged and are continuing to take root and grow. This symposium is all about building on this work and connecting on the themes of urban sustainability and cross species habitation. Here is some of the synopsis:

The urban built environment has largely been considered and constructed as a human habitat although we share these spaces with many other species. Urban Growth is placing pressure on natural and modified habitats changing the way we cohabit with other species in cities, towns and suburbs. Retention, modification and recreation of habitats requires new perspectives about how we share these spaces with more-than-human others. Our collective wellbeing is at stake, both for allowing urban life to thrive and human wellbeing gained from the relationship with our domestic and wild biota.

Tracey will be looking after the cross-media for the event and curating the art exhibition. Up to the event we plan to share some of the research and activities leading up to the symposium.

More details coming soon.
