Time & Location
About the Event
Earth Day 2022 The Art of Listening: Let Nature Do the TalkingAn official Individual Initiative supported by Earth Day Network (www.earthday.org)
In honour of Earth Day on the 22nd April 2022, we at Dunami would like to invite you to participate in a small individual happening – a creative contemplation outdoors, in which you Let Nature Do the Talking.
Join us as we take this time to engage in an individual artistic encounter with Nature in active listening and No Talking. Whether you have an hour to spare, or only 10 minutes, try to set aside some time to listen to the natural environment around you.
You may choose to mark the event by visiting your local nature reserve or another outdoor space which has provided sanctuary and calm during the times of hardship. Or instead, you may choose to use this as an opportunity to visit an outdoor location you have missed and been unable to visit in recent times.
Use this opportunity to reflect and listen to the natural world. How has this outdoor space changed or evolved since you were last here? How have changes in human activity impacted upon this outdoor space? Looking forward, what does the natural world have to offer?
Your creative contemplations can take any form! Whatever your preferred or chosen method of creativity, expression and exploration – it is welcome! There is no limit on the type, style or form of art you wish to create.
This is an opportunity to devote ourselves to meaningful listening, to refresh our minds, bodies and spirit and is an invitation to experience ‘being in silence’ while sensing in/with Nature.
We invite you to share your own documentation by uploading any images, writing, photography or recordings that you make during/as a result of the event.
This Earth Day, let us truly listen and show our gratitude to those natural spaces which continue to provide us with some much-needed energy, space and support!
Let us take time to pause and listen to Nature... To be open and receptive to its sounds and rhythms... To continue in this journey to enjoy and explore the outdoors…
