In this Lunchtime Talk, Toby Smith from Climate Outreach will explore how inclusive imagery of the natural environment is key to building a diverse climate movement.
Photos of the natural environment do not reflect the social, ethnic or geographic diversity of the country, which may create barriers to some people enjoying and feeling a sense of belonging in nature.
Toby Smith is the Climate Visuals Programme Lead and Media Liaison with a strategic goal of expanding their presence, influence and impact in the media and photographic sectors. Based in the South-West of England, Toby has over 12 years of experience as an environmental and editorial photography.
Climate Visuals, a programme of Climate Outreach, use an evidence-based approach to design and catalyse a more compelling and diverse visual language for climate change.
This talk is part of the Festival of Nature.
Open Studio Fridays
From 10:00 - 17:00 you can stay at the Studio for Open Studio Fridays - join us to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. The Studio provides chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Tell us what you’re up to, or allow us to facilitate conversations within the resident community. Studio staff and residents will be around to chat, answer questions, or tell you more about what we do. The open afternoons close at 17:00, sometimes with a trip to the Café & Bar.
Where to find us
The Lunchtime Talks take place in the Pervasive Media Studio, which is in the Watershed building. The Studio is just beyond the Café & Bar, turn right and then go down the corridor to your left (where the toilets are). The double doors here will be open, go all the way down until you reach the Studio. A member of staff will sign you in, and check your ticket, if you have booked.
