Matters of Care: Climate Change Activism through Film
How can ethnographic and world cultures museums use their collections and galleries as spaces which create active discussion around the impact of humans on the planet, while also highlighting what long-term perspectives can tell us about sustainability for developing positive futures? The project TAKING CARE explores the connections between ethnographic collections and questions regarding the climate crisis, the Anthropocene and issues related to the afterlives of colonialism (https://takingcareproject.eu/).

In the third week of the Matters of Care: Museum futures in times of planetary precarity conference series, we are joined by two filmmakers, Itandehui Jansen and Camilla Andersen, who will talk to Lotten Gustaffson Reinius and Christopher Morton about the process of creating thought-provoking films as a form of activism.
