Werkweek Ecologie

Posted Feb. 15, 2013 by Shelbatra Jashari

We led two workshops on ecological topics at the Kunsthumaniora Brussels in Laeken. This is a secondary school and home to future artists, musicians, theatre actors, dancers, and other young creative people. Though the day started out cold, without much sun and pouring a slushy combination of rain and snow, a small offering to nature as weather medication encouraged the sun to appear.

We helped students build several urban ikebana sculptures with ecological materials in their schoolyard, while a second group compared the characteristics of humans and trees, writing a short story about selected trees as if they where humans.
