Channel your solidarity by participating in this direct-action arts workshop: hear from indigenous activists and experience the power of participatory arts in calling for climate justice in Scotland, internationally and online.

The event will include a short film and a talk by Indigenous activists and artists in Brazil fighting to protect the Amazon’s Xingu Indigenous Park from damming and drilling. Participants will then have the chance to paint a large banner devised as part of an international project in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples in Brazil.

No arts background necessary: bring your curiosity and an old over-shirt to protect your clothes.
