Rights of Nature
JO DACOMBE pages 267-274
DOI: 10.15730/forum.2020.62.2.267


Artist Jo Dacombe remembers a school residency when she was working as an Associate Artist at Nottingham Contemporary, a large contemporary arts centre. Through the residency, she worked with a group of primary children of mixed ages to explore themes from the exhibition Rights of Nature. She describes the experience for the children, the nature of a creative enquiry-based practice and how this process benefitted this particular group of children. The impact was far-reaching, not just developing their creative skills but also their self-confidence and personal connections with nature and how we treat the world. Jo concludes with her reflections on the benefits of creative projects to engage young children with the nature around them.
