Mapping Notes

Mapping practices have a long history of being a means and a method of maintaining coloniality. With the Climate Art Map, we have aimed to view land not in terms of provincial or nation-state borders that were crafted via colonial dictates, but rather in relation to both native land(s) and ecozones. It is also important to note that while we are pleased to be able to show a dataset relationship between artists and their placement on a map, the land upon which each artist sits is not a mere dataset. Behind each dataset there exists rich natural and cultural realities that inform our lives sensorially, socially, culturally, ecologically and economically – realities which are increasingly in upheaval due to the impacts of climate change.

Meet the team

The Climate Art Web is based on a mycorrhizal network model. Grounded by the knowledge and experience of the Indigenous artists who comprise our Indigenous Advisory Council, the network connects individual artists across northern Turtle Island in order to share and transfer ‘nutrients’ in the form of resources, events, best practices, and opportunities. CAW-WAC’s Community Connectors help cultivate the development of the network, and they encourage relationships to form with the assistance of the Climate Art Map. The TRAction organizing committee provides support for the network in the form of research, visioning and administration.
