Inspired by the beauty of the planet and the wisdom of its people, the exhibition will explore the essence of the twelve traditions coming together for the Council and Symposium and capture both Humanity and the Earth’s natural splendour.
Wisdom and Nature will raise awareness about the wisdom held by indigenous cultures regarding both society and the environment. Each tradition will be represented through photography and film clips providing an insight into these cultures, as well as a glimpse into ancient ecological wisdom and its mystical relationship with nature.
Alongside this will be displayed a collection of 40 contemporary artworks portraying the beauty of the planet, Man’s imprint on Nature and Man and Nature’s relationship to one another.
Renowned artists, galleries and private collectors, are generously donating these artworks.
