During Reading Climate Festival, adults and young people aged 14+ can join us for these events which explore the potential of agroforestry (farming and forestry) to mitigate climate change and enhance biodiversity with Dr. Jen Clarke (anthropologist, artist and educator, leading the arts research on a multi-disciplinary project about Agroforestry in the UK.)

This collage workshop will draw from a curated selection of images and archival materials unearthed from the MERL collection. We’ll look at the crucial role of images, maps and visualisations in planning and public consultations and transform these into unique and evocative collage creations that weave together past and present.
