In our present world today the impact and consequences of Climate Change have been staggering.
It would be fair to say that practical nothing on the planet has escaped it – quite literally micro has exploded to macro at a level rarely seen in human experience. Our societies economic and political systems world-wide have been dazzled like a rabbit in the headlights. The impact for us, our families, our jobs, our health, our social lifesyles and psyche is nothing sort of astounding..
If ever there was, in our lifetime, an example of the delicate fragility and interdependence of life in our world and eco-system this surely must be it. All organisms in a system depend on each other, if one rises or falls, then this can, and will affect the rest of the system.
For many, experiencing and living this process throughout COVID has given us cause to reflect on this in terms of our world views and ways we live, work and communicate.
Into this setting The Black Chapel Collective (a group of artists, DJ’s, musicians,rappers and poets using contemporary multi media) look to explore Interdependance and Connectivity.
