Educational Packages

Silencing / Unsilencing Nature is an educational package that unpacks the relationship between humans and nature, and how nature often has been silenced. The package offers strategies to unsilence nature, and give nature more of a voice, through an assignment that generates a photography exhibition and catalogue. The package consists of an introductory video, four mini-lectures on video (each with one or two exercises), two assignment videos, an epilogue video and a workshop script. The package is available upon motivated request, free of charge, by emailing Nico Carpentier, after which a password will be provided. Please use the contact form in the menu above.
