WHOLE EARTH! Exhibition
Bristol Harbourside and University of Bristol Campus
Bristol Student Union and the University Green Academy team are bringing the WHOLE EARTH? Exhibition to the University from 25 September until the end of October. We are one of the Universities world-wide hosting the launch of the exhibition in September.
The exhibition is the sequel to the critically acclaimed ‘Hard Rain’ project, which has been viewed on every continent by over 15 million people in galleries, in cites, in many universities, and at the United Nations Headquarters.
WHOLE EARTH? is based upon the premise that students and universities can help lead society towards a more sustainable future. The exhibition addresses the many challenges we face when trying to tackle the world’s most pressing issues – from climate change to poverty, to refugees, to overpopulation, to food and energy security, to water and soil restoration, to biodiversity and human and indigenous rights. The exhibition shows a combination of photography and pieces of writing which provide evidence and promote challenges to staff and students across their disciplines. The idea is that whatever the area of study - from engineering to languages, from science to finance - there is a place for everyone to contribute to the debate and act on these critical issues in the context of their own studies, research and lives.
The main outdoor exhibition will be located on Harbourside for Bristol SU Welcome Fair on Friday 25 September and will be free. It will then move to locations around the University Precinct as a Whole Earth Trail and will be on open exhibition from 30th September until the end of October.
It is then moving to the University of the Seychelles where it will form an exhibition in the new year involving schools, university students and the public.
