Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex
Three species are lost to eternity every hour. November 30th is a chance to learn and tell their stories, and to renew commitments to those remaining. At a time of heightened awareness of the dangers of fragmentation and isolation politically and ecologically, the focus of RDLS 2016 will be on two particular extinction stories that relate to the theme of islands and seas:
ONCA is hosting extinction-themed blog posts in the run-up to Remembrance Day for Lost Species, November 30th. We seek contributions for the blog in any medium, and stories to share online. We welcome extinction-related visual art, creative writing, historical accounts and artefacts to share through our website, social media channels and partner projects’ channels. We are also calling for artists, companies, schools and communities to hold memorial events around November 30th 2016. These could take the form of processions, ‘funerals’, or other participatory events marking the extinction of the thylacine, the Bramble Cay melomys, or focusing on any lost or disappearing species or place you wish to. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP with proposals for the blog, or at any time to let us know about events you are planning.
