Archive Project: Rites of Nature

“Rites of Nature” was a free online series of workshops for Black & People of Colour of all ages. During the sessions, the group interrogated the term ‘nature’, our personal relationships and practices with it, while exploring land rights through the creation of video pieces. Materials from 198’s 32-year archive were used to inspire and inform the sessions.  Rites of Nature was presented by 198 Contemporary Arts & Learning and Laurèl Hadleigh, and Deborah Findlater.  This project is a part of Creating a Legacy: Archiving 30 Years of 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning; supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
