Interweave

Interweave explores the convergence of African cultures, past and present, within today’s global society.

Climate change has emerged as the greatest challenge facing humanity, threatening human and animal existence. Extreme weather events and increased temperatures resulting in flooding and droughts are having unavoidable impact on food and water security and human health, particularly in Africa. Those who contribute the least to climate change are emerging as the most affected. Environmental degradation from intensive agricultural practices and resource exploitation has intensified the issues in many African regions.

Rural to urban migration—brought about by economic and geopolitical influences, the impact of colonization, partitioning, and, more recently, extreme climate events and food insecurity—has led to destabilization and displacement.

The images selected for Interweave take a humanistic approach, drawing links between the social, economic, and ecological interweave of people and their deep-rooted connection to place. The exhibition reflects upon the impact of human interventions on the culture and livelihoods of people and their interdependence with the natural world.

Ukama Gallery and Valerie Durant are supporting the 2016 Vancouver South Africa Film Festival, running April 8 to 10, and Education without Borders.
