NAH_Remote: Coexistence


Theme | Workshop


The global pandemic of 2020 forced NAHR to temporarily suspend its normal residency and workshop in Italy.

Early in the pandemic, NAHR asked users to submit their reflections on nature, art and habitat in the age of COVID-19. You’ll find the remarkable collection of text, images, videos and audio pieces we received in response here.

Instead of our usual residency and workshop, we hosted a series of online dialogs on the theme of “coexistence”, inviting participants to share their thoughts on “coexistence,” “resilience”, and the evolution of environmental thinking in the context of NAHR’s underlying philosophy and the world-wide pandemic. Here are the recordings of those online workshops.
La pandemia globale del 2020 ha costretto NAHR a sospendere temporaneamente la sua normale residenza e laboratorio in Italia.

All'inizio della pandemia, NAHR ha chiesto agli utenti di inviare le proprie riflessioni su natura, arte e habitat nell'era del COVID-19. Troverai la straordinaria raccolta di testi, immagini, video e brani audio che abbiamo ricevuto in risposta qui.

Invece della nostra consueta residenza e seminario, abbiamo ospitato una serie di dialoghi online sul tema della "coesistenza", invitando i partecipanti a condividere i loro pensieri su "coesistenza", "resilienza" e l'evoluzione del pensiero ambientale nel contesto di base di NAHR filosofia e la pandemia mondiale. Ecco le registrazioni di quei workshop online.
