How can we diversify creative practices in response to current ecological and social challenges? In Creative Ecologies & Tactical Resistance in the Anthropocene, artist, urban farmer and creative director Michael Smythe will explore strategies for individuals and communities to reshape their urban environment to prioritise environmental and social justice.

We will discuss interspecies collaboration, economics and community activism, referencing Michael’s recent projects including Phytology, an urban physic garden and research institute in Bethnal Green (East London); Urban Mind a global research project investigating the relationship between the landscape and mental health; and Mobile Apothecary, a herbal medicine dispensary providing free healthcare to individuals and communities with limited access to accommodation and quality health care.
