MEANDER Society

MEANDER – Society for Ecological Thinking and Artistic Practice was established in Norway in 2018 by the artists Kjersti Vetterstad and Randi Nygård together with fellow artists Geir Tore Holm, Søssa Jørgensen and architect Kristin Astrup Aas.

Through different artistic activities, MEANDER aims at contributing to broadening our understanding of the interconnected and transcorporeal nature of all living systems, and to challenge world views that have fatal consequences for life on Earth.

SCORE #2: How do you make a forest?

The forest, the house of protection, and in it the quilombos and the villages, a community of people and plants, animals and spirits.

The Amazon, under genocidal attack, the garden of humanity’s backyard, sown in the black land of Indigenous by the human hand before the colonization of America.

Against monoculture, many cultures-natures. The forest is always made.

In a world that needs regeneration, how do you make a forest?
