Free to attend

CIWEM West Midlands Branch invites you to this seminar and lunch at the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR), Coventry University. This event will be a space to share ideas and perspectives, get to know new people, explore a different side of yourself, enhance collaborations and nourish your mind and body.

CAWR is a pioneer in research into resilient and socially just food and water systems internationally. Its growing community of staff, students and collaborators represent a rich diversity of different disciplines and cultures from across the world. CIWEM and CAWR share the belief that the knowledge of people - artists, citizens, farmers, scientists, water users - all matters in nurturing a better, more just world.

Food and water security are increasingly threatened by factors such as climate and environmental change, loss of biodiversity, conflict and market volatility. New knowledge, policies and technologies are needed to develop systems that are more resilient to change and which ensure the health of our food and water supplies. Resilient systems are better able to bounce back from stresses caused by longer-term change or short-term events - be it natural processes such as flooding, or human impacts such as war or water pollution incidents.

This seminar and lunch is an opportunity to meet, hear about each other’s work and explore new collaborations between CIWEM and CAWR. The discussion will include contributions from CIWEM West Midlands and Clive Adams of the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW), who co- founded the Arts and Environment Network with CIWEM in 2007. Representatives from CAWR will share the latest developments in the fields. There will be an opportunity to hear more about CAWR’s innovative Artist Research Residency initiative from research associates Miche Fabre Lewin and Flora Gathorne-Hardy of Touchstones.
