Join us for the launch of Extracting Us: Looking Differently at Feminism, Politics and Coal Extraction, this is a free event and everyone is welcome.

This exhibition seeks to ‘look differently’ at the politics of coal extraction, taking an intersectional approach and bringing together feminism, ecology, climate change and politics. Presenting photographs from Indonesia, the exhibition will be accompanied with a workshop, reading group, film screening and talk by Indonesian scholar-activist to create a space for challenging ‘north-south’ narratives and practicing climate justice.

The exhibition is organised and co-curated by members of the Well-being, Ecology, Gender and cOmmunity (WEGO) network Siti Maimunah, Elona Hoover, Rebecca Elmhirst, Dian Ekowati and Alice Owen, and with ONCA Gallery manager Lydia Heath. 



WEGO is the first international feminist political ecology network of its kind. Funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska–Curie programme, it brings together scholar-activists interested in demonstrating how communities actively sustain and care for their environment and community well-being.

The exhibition and events are made possible with kind support from he WEGO Innovation Training Network, the University of Brighton Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics and JATAM.
