LABVERDE: Art Immersion Program in the Amazon functions as a multidisciplinary platform for the development of nature and ecology critical thinking. Artists, scientists and other agents of knowledge come together to recognize and narrate nature, in an attempt to create new ways of existing and interacting with the natural environment, as well as speculate on possible futures. The program’s main focus is to promote artistic creation through a constructive debate about environmental issues generated by theory, data and life experiences in the Amazon rainforest. Transdisciplinary content will foster an analytical and critical perspective of issues such as landscape interpretation, nature representation, and the role of art in engaging social-ecological behavior.

Expectations towards the artist
We hope the network and training process will serve as the basis for artistic research that may be developed and shared after the program. Although the program does not carry on to a physical production, there will be project presentations and group discussion, in which the specificities of each artist will be contextualized.
