An O N C A Conversation: Art in the Trees

2 October 2014
6:30 pm
8:30 pm

Featuring artist Jennifer Hooper, ONCA Founder Laura Coleman and CIWY Head of International Relations Jonathan Cassidy.

In 1992, Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi was born, an NGO that works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate animals captured and sold on the Bolivian black market.

In 2012, Laura Coleman set up the ONCA gallery in Brighton, inspired to bring together art and conservation by the friendship that she formed in Bolivia with one of CIWY’s rescued pumas.

In 2013, Jennifer Hooper spent 9 weeks as Artist in Residence at one of CIWY’s jungle refuges.  ONCA’s current exhibition is a collection of Jennifer’s paintings, drawings and photographs – presenting her creative response to the forest, and the creatures that depend upon its survival for their own.

Join Jennifer, Laura and Jon as we discuss animal encounters in the jungle, and explore the links between art and conservation, survival and friendship.  

Tickets: £3 in advance, £4 on the door. Please book via eventbrite or email .
