Climate Unity Project

Making Space was asked to be a part of the Climate Unity Project organised by Hampshire Services last year. This project is a continuation of their sucessful ‘Our Climate Change Forest‘ project which took place in 2020-21.

This project aims to address a range of perspectives on the climate issues facing us all and provides opportunities for those standpoints to be expressed through the medium of Art. The project aims to engage the community in disscussions about climate unity and will be organising a series of installations across the county in the summer of 2022.

What is Making Space offering?

We will be hosting a variety of sessions & workshops that all coincide with this project and have teamed up with local artist and weaver Alice Hume.

Alice will be teaching our Reach Out group 4 sessions as part of our Easter Activities, and we will also be hosting 4 x FREE community sessions facilitated by Alice during our weekly ASTM sessions at Making Space.

During all these sessions we will be creating artworks that comprise of a circular form using recycled & natural materials to be symbolic of the planet and ideas about eternity and inclusion.

“The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original
perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity and timelessness. Embedding ideas about Climate Change, eternity, protection
and inclusion”

All the artworks created during Making Space sessions will go on display at Staunton Country Park for the duration of the Summer hopefully joined by other pieces created by local schools and local community groups. Additional sites across Hampshire are also involved in the project and we will share more information nearer the time.
