'For Dom, Bruno & the Amazon'
Starting in Global Education Week* (14-20 November) the exhibition taking us through to the end of 2023 revisits the Amazon, with a display of engravings of Yanomami Body Art by award winning Brazilian artist Artur Soar.
These engravings will be shown alongside the 'For Dom, Bruno and the Amazon' exhibition which was created in 2022 for Halton Mill's month long festival honouring the lives of environmental journalist Dom Phillips, brother of local musician Sian Phillips, and indigenous expert Bruno Pereira, murdered in Amazonia.
The exhibition has been touring nationally since its publication last year: it has visited London, Preston, Bangor, Skipton and Lancaster, with appearances planned in the autumn at Reading University, the University of the West of Scotland, Lancaster Boys' Grammar School, and on the Tall Ship Glenlee.
Entry to the exhibition, from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday, is free.
*Global Education Week is an annual World-Wide awareness raising initiative unfolding from 14 to 20 November 2022.
It is a call to rethink our world together, using Global Education as a tool for solidarity and change and contribute for a more sustainable, peaceful and equitable world.
