On Friday 25th June, dedicated activist and organiser, Kelly Hill introduced the crowd to Writers Rebel’s latest project, Paint the Land.
#PaintTheLand was launched with the help of Booker prize-winning writer Ben Okri and artist-activists Ackroyd & Harvey. Okri’s message to world governments, “Can’t you hear the future weeping? Our love must save the world” was grown on an 16x4m carpet of living grass and floated on the Thames at Bankside Beach 25.06.21.
In the lead up to COP-26, Writers Rebel is collaborating with leading artists and writers to create landscape graffitos that urge world leaders to ACT NOW in the face of climate catastrophe.
Call to action: We are encouraging groups across the world to do the same. For information on how to paint the land read this.
