10:00AM – 11:00AM
Opening Address | Simon Redfern, Dean, College of Science, President’s Chair in Earth Sciences, Professor, Asian School of Environment, Nanyang Technological University

Keynote | The Potential and Impact of Environmentally-Engaged Artistic Practices in Collaboration with Academic Research
Presenter: Ute Meta Bauer, Professor at the School of Art, Design and Media, NTU & Founding Director of NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore

In this keynote speech, Professor at NTU ADM and Director of NTU CCA, Ute Meta Bauer builds on her decade long inquiry into the potential of a cross disciplinary approach in research and practice engaged in Climates. Habitats. Environments. Encouraging inquiries and collaborations between environmentally and socially engaged artistic practices and the fields of climate science, conservation and preservation of cultures and ecosystems is the driver of a new database that has been created over the past 18 months. Drawing from an expansive network of artists mainly active in South and Southeast Asia this website is intended to give access to wealth of environmentally-engaged artistic practices whose long term engagement established impactful examples how to navigate and communicate the complexity of vast changing realities in a tangible way. The database presented in this keynote was designed to connect artists, climate scientists, researchers and policymakers with projects in similar regions to benefit from each other and to generate socially robust outcomes. On this project, Bauer is joined by research assistant Angela Ricasio Hoten, an Environmental Studies graduate from Yale-NUS College and current research assistant at the School of Art, Design and Media, NTU, as well as Eunice Paola Ramos Lacaste, a PhD candidate at NTU School of Art, Design and Media. Together they work in close exchange with the more then hundred artists featured in this database. This project is supported by the Ministry of Education Academic Research Fund Tier 1 project (RG39/21) “Environmentally-Engaged Artistic Practices in South, Southeast Asia and the Pacific and their potential impact as contribution for transdisciplinary research in Singapore”.

Panel: Ang Song Nian (Artist, Lecturer at NTU ADM, Singapore), Zen Teh (Artist, Singapore), Dr Ching Jianhong (Assistant Professor, Duke-NUS), Moderated by Angela Ricasio Hoten (ADM NTU)

In our first panel discussion of the symposium, we bring together long-term collaborators, artist Zen Teh and scientist Dr Ching Jianhong (Duke-NUS) alongside artist and lecturer, Ang Song Nian (NTU ADM) to discuss the practice of interdisciplinary collaboration in Singapore. Moderated by Angela R Hoten, environmental research assistant at NTU, this panel will explore the challenges and joys of generating an interdisciplinary artistic practice through local and regional environmental sites. The panel will explore the differences across the various disciplines of art and science while also navigating the tricky distinctions between and across interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary collaboration.

12:00PM – 1:00PM

1:00PM – 2:00PM
In Conversation | Islands in Flux: Weathering the Future
Panel: Nice Buenaventura (Artist, Philippines), Serina Rahman (Lecturer, NUS), Moderated by Soh Kay Min (NTU ADM)

Join filipina artist Nice Buenaventura and lecturer Serina Rahman (Department of Southeast Asian Studies, NUS) as they discuss the value and importance of citizen-centered learning in their home localities. Moderated by research associate, Soh Kay Min (NTU ADM), the panel will discuss the ways that weather shapes community practices and strategies across the archipelago and the different ways that our panelists document these practices through art and citizen science.

2:00PM – 4:00PM
Tropikalye Workshop | Nice Buenaventura

Tropikalye is an exercise in citizen-ethnography, taking shape as a mutual co-learning resource on vernacular material culture, particularly the accidental intersections of aesthetics and the everyday in the Philippines and, occasionally, the region. In this edition, Nice Buenaventura will expand Tropikalye to Singapore’s streets. Supported by MOE Tier 1 Grant Environmentally-Engaged Artistic Practices in South, Southeast Asia and the Pacific, this workshop will bring participants into the digital streets of Singapore, to document the tangible manifestations of folk strategies that respond to tropical and postcolonial conditions. From this workshop participants will build the Singapore edition of the Tropikalye index through written, photographic and audio documentation.

Lunch Break

1:00PM – 2:30PM
Workshop | #ClimateEmergis, how to design the future together
Workshop by Nashin Mahtani, Founder of Peta Bencana and Climate Emergency Software Alliance (CESA)

Join Nashin in this workshop to develop a unique design development charette to conceptualise and refine the visual representation of “climate emergis”. “Climate Emergis” is a set of digital communications tailored to represent and report various facets of climate change. These symbols, once approved by Unicode and released via updates on every smart phone across the globe, will offer people a simple yet powerful tool to share, report, and cooperate to address urgent environmental challenges.



2:30PM – 4:30PM
Film Screening & Conversation
In conversation with Yeo Siew Hua and Dr Marc Glöde (NTU ADM)

Join us for a screening of An Invocation to the Earth followed by a Director’s Talk with Director Yeo Siew Hua and moderated by Dr Marc Glöde (NTU ADM). Conceived during the month of the Hungry Ghost Festival in 2019, while large scale fires were consuming the forests of Indonesia, Yeo Siew Hua’s An Invocation to the Earth confronts climate collapse through the lense of pre-colonial folktales and animistic rituals. Through spoken spells and bodily entanglements, the video conjures up the fallen environmental defenders of a region ridden with ecological threats in the hope that their spirits will be reborn once again.
