‘Intersectional Geographies advocates for a deeper understanding of multi-faceted overlaps between protecting and sustaining our planet’s ecosystems and the people situated within diverse geographical contexts, whether they be mining communities, rural landscapes, and/or UK home environments… The exhibition asks questions, open dialogue, and stimulates conversations that are representative of our present day climate justice crisis. Thus, creating a visual aesthetic and an atmospheric experience that will undoubtedly evoke empathy, knowledge, understanding and deeper insights’. – Jacqueline Ennis-Cole, Curator
This event is sponsored by our friends and local Bristol brewery Lost and Grounded.
