Who? Participating photographers: Newsha Tavakolian, Martin Parr, Hans van der Meer, Stefan Banz, Bleda Y Rosa, Nicolai Howalt
What? The Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World are an education focused charity whose main aim is to promote awareness of environmental issues and their potential solutions. This event will feature photography and film from 16 artists, spanning 12 different countries. The uniting theme of the artwork will be the way that sport can be used as vehicle through which to comment on our lives and civilization today. This will include the forward-thinking new generation of video games which aim to tackle social and environmental challenges – certainly a positive step, as we come to recognise that games reflect our attitudes, cultures and human nature as a whole. Alongside the exhibition, there will be wooden board games available to play and outdoor games to purchase. The emphasis is on playing nicely; the better our understanding of cooperation and team work, the closer we will come to solving environmental issues. This topic couldn’t be more relevant in the wake of the Olympic and Paralympic games.
