Dear Earth

Haywards Gallery, open until 3rd September, tickets from £15

Dear Earth is inspired by artist Otobong Nkanga’s suggestion that ‘caring is a form of resistance’.

Bringing together 15 artists from around the world, the exhibition explores the interdependence of ecologies and ecosystems, as well as our emotional connection with nature.  

From giant photographs made on grass to a large-scale media screen made with recycled bottles, the artworks in the show highlight ingenuity and inventiveness, as well as empathy and understanding.

OmVed Gardens

OmVed Gardens, Highgate, London

Various events, available all year round, prices vary

OmVed Gardens was born in 2017 to rewild a piece of land and with it, our ways to relate to it, to food and to our human and non-human kin.

Omved Gardens has been transformed by landscape architect Paul Gazerwitz into a lush meandering journey that encourages us to pause, observe and reconsider our relationship with the environment.   They host various events throughout the year, collaborating with communities of artists, chefs, scientists and musicians to rethink how we relate to the environment in more mindful and creative ways.
