Insight into the Nests of Hope exhibition by Karen Whiterod
Karen Whiterod’s latest work was entitled ‘Hope Calling’: ‘an art and environment project for young people and adults who are concerned about climate change, global justice, species loss, or the future for their grandchildren’.
By framing these topics within positive messaging, we aim to change people’s perception of how they can personally be an agent for change and an advocate for climate action.
