Environmentally-Engaged Artistic Practices in South, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Database

Visit the database.

The Environmentally-Engaged Artistic Practices in South, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Database aspires to provide a comprehensive and rich data source for artists, climate scientists, and policymakers on the artistic practices of artists and collectives from the South, Southeast Asian and Pacific Regions. The complexity of the climate crisis at hand requires a transdisciplinary approach to research and practice, even as we see climate change becoming an ever-pressing theme across the disciplines of science and art. This database does not aim to be an exhaustive list of artists from the South, Southeast Asian and Pacific regions but a carefully crafted list of artists and collectives that focus on environmental themes. Drawing on the expertise built up by NTU CCA over the years, this database animates the expansive network of artists from around the South, Southeast Asian and Pacific regions dedicated to themes related to traditional knowledge, biodiversity and ecosystems, anthropogenic impacts and risk and resilience. The hope is that this database presents an easy-to-use and initial source of information for scientists, policymakers and artists to find artists relevant to their area of expertise or region of study with the possibility of collaborating with artists in the database toward building transdisciplinary research methods.

The content featured in the database is edited and proofread by an internal team at NTU CCA. If you would like to contribute to, update or edit any of the information in the database, please email ntuccacomms@ntu.edu.sg to get in touch.
