Join us in conversation with an esteemed Japanese artist Takashi Kuribayashi and renowned environmentalist Bob Brown as part of the Mutable Ecologies public program series Woodland Habitats.
The program will commence with a 30-minute artistic presentation for Kuribayashi and an introduction from Brown followed by a reflection and joint discussion on concepts related to thresholds Kuribayashi's statement:
"The truth resides in places that are invisible. Once you are aware that there is a different world out of sight, you will be living in a different way."
Dr Yuki Matsuoka, Head of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Office in Japan, will provide introductory remarks, "Interconnections and the all-of-society engagement enshrined by the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction".
