The Greenverse and ActZero Online Launch
Please join us on Wed 10 Nov to celebrate the launch of The Greenverse – an online landscape populated with ideas provoking climate action, made by young artists in Bath and Seoul during a Creative Camp; and ActZero - a provocation led by South Korean artists Bang & Lee. Join us to hear from some of the participants and organisers and then enter the Greenverse to explore and interact with their creations and provocations.
Co-hosted by Art Center Nabi, Watershed and Bang & Lee, the launch actively coincides with the final days of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow (UK), and is the result of a programme of work funded by The British Council and The Korea Foundation (KF) as part of the cultural programme for P4G Seoul Summit and COP26. The Creative Camp is also supported by The Studio at Palace Yard Mews and Bristol+Bath Creative R+D.
In early October seven young people from across continents were invited to participate in a 5-day Creative Camp hosted by Art Centre Nabi and Watershed in collaboration with Bristol+Bath Creative R+D. It was an invitation to collectively consider the climate crisis and generate artistic ideas. Through online meet ups, activities in each location and inspiration sessions with artists and activists participants explored topics ranging from global inequalities to responsibilities, to playful action and individual well-being. Conversations zoomed out and in resulting in the creation of scratch works that we are delighted to share with you.

When, where and how to join us online.
The launch will be co-hosted by Art Center Nabi, Watershed and artists Bang & Lee and will take place online at 10am (GMT) / 7pm (KST) on Wed 10 Nov 2021.
The Greenverse is funded by The British Council and The Korea Foundation (KF), who in early 2021 jointly invited applications for a creative commission that integrated art, science and digital technology and responded to climate change. This commission is a part of the cultural programme for P4G Seoul Summit held in Seoul in May 2021 and the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) taking place in Glasgow in November 2021.
