What is a resilient community? An illustration for the Forecast for Anticipatory Humanitarian Action project ❤️#climateresilience
Textile art for a Friday. One of my unexpected new explorations over the pandemic era was around textiles and ethical fashion, I think sparked when I connected with @rememberwhomadethem @swateedeepak and @venetialamanna and their lovely team for some illustration work. For so long in my career I was focused on showing up as a “serious” person (my forever mission lol) who focused on only serious topics and also didn’t buy unnecessary things. So therefore I would try ignore my magnet for beautiful and artistic clothes and that kind of superficial expression (while still spending time in thrift stores every place I went). But then, as we all started to wake up more and more to the damages of fast fashion, and, consequently, giving rise to more careful considered clothing creation that centers people’s well-being and the earth, I started to let go. So here is one of the most beautiful textile art pieces I’ve ever worn, second to a magical sweater that my mom made. By Saida and @zazi.vintage ❤️
Oh and photos by the one and only magic duo @joelandjustyna
A bit more of the ongoing visual exploration of Burkina Faso’s future climate unknowns ⚠️. A colleague of mine recently said something that I found surprising (and then I was surprised at my surprise), and it was along the lines of how people who are, and will be, most affected by climate change - people we can sometimes place into a victim box in our minds - will find new and unknown and wildly brilliant opportunities within what just looks like strife from where we now stand. People will continue to find ways to be creative and strong and energized and hopeful, and they’ll strive to make the most with their tools and circumstances. Maybe that’s a motivating perspective for you too when you’re contemplating the state of the world today and in the future, and when you’re striving doing the best you can do ❤️

A place that seems inhospitable for human living has been home for communities for so long. Fragile careful human-environment relationships that are threatened by almost-out-of-sight capitalist global violence.
