Acclaimed photography exhibition 'WHOLE EARTH?' comes to UEA Acclaimed photography exhibition 'WHOLE EARTH?' comes to UEA

If you have travelled down Chancellors Drive recently then you will probably have noticed a photography exhibition, 'WHOLE EARTH?', installed as part of Go Green Week 2018.

Touring internationally, the exhibition challenges students and universities to lead society in creating a more sustainable future and is hosted by UEA's Sustainable Development team.

It is a sequel to the critically-acclaimed 'Hard Rain' project, which highlighted current global issues and the need to tackle them collectively. It was seen by more than 15 million people at galleries and public spaces worldwide, including the UN headquarters. 'WHOLE EARTH?' extends 'Hard Rain' by providing solutions to the issues raised, many of which were developed and researched at universities.

The exhibition, co-created by photojournalist Mark Edwards and environmental writer Lloyd Timberlake, is 60 meters long and has been described as 'a modern-day Bayeux Tapestry'.

"We're excited to be able to inspire conversations around sustainability and what it means within a university context through this thought-provoking exhibition," said Catrin Darsley, Sustainable Development Manager.

"The piece provides the information to join the debate about our collective future and examines how various subject areas could embed sustainability within learning and teaching. I'd encourage anyone interested in sharing their ideas to get in touch."
