Art is a powerful agent to intervene in real life contexts and to improve them. In activist, environmentalist, educational, alternative economical and other contexts, creative
strategies are required to make people think and to initiate change. Perma-culture takes natural ecosystems as the model to sustainably build up farms, gardens, houses and settlements. Perma-arts takes real life systems to discuss and enhance real life conditions. This module tackles the interface between artistic, horticultural and agricultural practices to consolidate a creative and sustainable agency.
