Art ACT Research document
Saskia Stehouwer & Will Kranendonk
This research aims to create a poetic map of spaces and voices in Flanders and the Netherlands that form the starting point of projects at the crossroads of ecology and poetry (possibly combined with other art forms). In this way it will elaborate on the central aims that we, de Klimaatdichters (Climate Poets) and Poëziecentrum Gent (Ghent Poetry Center), have formulated for our ArtAct project: to focus on climate poetry from a more-than-human perspective, engaging in conversation with, and giving a voice to, spaces and landscapes, in order to inspire climate awareness and action in an innovative and creative manner.

We also reflected on the themes we discussed in the research by means of an exchange of letters, which was published here on the Versepolis website.
