This talk is organised by an external group; please go to their website for more details: www.botanicalencounters.com or click on Book Tickets to register.

Part of the Botanical Encounters series.

This mixed-media workshop, led by Lucia Harley, draws on the preceding talk by Nicholaas Pinas which reflects on biodiversity and colonial resistance in Maroon communities in Suriname and French Guiana.

It will focus on rice, a keystone crop in all Maroon communities and one of the reasons which made marronage successful. Participants will look at little known African rice varieties and use creativity to explore through drawing and collaging the significations of plants and their connections with people who were transplanted form their original contexts through colonialism. The workshop is suited to all audiences from the age of 12.

Lucia Harley is a freelance artist educator who works with objects, live actions, drawing and film. She has devised and delivered creative workshops including schools and community workshops and curated events for various organisations.
