Voices of Resilience, 2024. Poetry Installation

Voices of Resilience, 2024. Poetry Installation

This is a collaborative project of our Artivism and Amplifiers fellowship program, which builds  the capacity of young people from communities most impacted by the climate crisis and encourages meaningful collaboration between youth from the Global North and South. 






Voices of Resilience, a collaborative ecofeminist poetry installation explores the complexities  of climate and gender issues, drawing inspiration from Indigenous wisdom and land connection. This poignant piece serves as a hopeful beacon, inviting viewers to envision a future where collective action fosters environmental preservation and social harmony. Through diverse voices and perspectives, it illuminates the shared struggles and resilience of marginalized communities, urging solidarity in the face of global challenges while celebrating their unique contributions to healing and restoration.


As a heartfelt homage to those who have suffered and continue to battle the adverse effects of environmental degradation and societal neglect, it is hoped these voices inspire a call to action.



Stand alongside those who defend the earth.  Contribute your voice to the ever-growing chorus demanding change.
