Sant Khalsa’s work is currently displayed in the Impressions Gallery touring exhibition Seedscapes: Future Proofine Nature, while Léonie Hampton’s new commission for RAMM has been made in response to the museum’s seeds collections. Art and environmental activism inform both artists’ work. They see the personal as political, recognising that tree planting, forest conservation and growing your own food can help in healing our planet and slowing climate change. Both artists aim to be good stewards of the earth. As Hampton says, ‘To stop trying to control everything. To work with and in nature as a way forward. We are in earth. Not on earth’.

This is a unique opportunity to hear these artists’ perspective as they talk about creating new work in response to the climate and ecological crises of the Age of the Anthropocene.
