About this event
Join us for an evening of exploration and creativity at the Climate Anxiety Painting Workshop with FOTU, innovative sustainable fashion brand, followed by an engaging panel talk and an exciting launch party. This event aims to raise awareness about climate change and provide a space for self-expression and discussion.
This workshop is designed to encourage playful exploration of the potential benefits of creativity and craft in gaining a deeper understanding of emotions and attitudes surrounding climate change. With mental health problems on the rise, exploring abstract expressionism as a mechanism for catharsis is crucial. We'll examine art as a call to action, creating pieces that may appear oddly beautiful on the surface, but serve as objects to help us reflect on and question our impact on the planet. Our focus will be on self-exploration, particularly concerning environmental concerns and the emotions that arise from them. By engaging in creative expression, we hope to help individuals gain a greater understanding of their emotions and attitudes surrounding the changing climate.
Climate Anxiety Painting Workshop: 5:00- 6:00 pm
Participants will have the opportunity to channel their climate anxiety into artwork. The workshop will offer guidance and support, helping attendees create their own anxiety therapy pieces. If participants wish, they can also choose to have their artwork digitally printed afterward.
Climate Anxiety Panel talk: 6:15- 7:00 pm
Abigail, founder of FOTU will moderate a thought-provoking discussion about the environment, climate change, and the role of media in raising awareness and promoting sustainability.
Launch Party with complimentary drinks: 7:00- 9:00 pm
The panel talk will be followed by the Weekly Designer's Launch Party enjoying complimentary drinks & light music where customers can relish the vibes of the store and get familiar with the amazing collection assisted by our sales team.
