The Earth Emotions Exhibition opened online on Earth Day 22 April 2022 at with five virtual galleries. 
We're excited to announce that a video version of the exhibition will be playing on a digital screen at the Elma Turner Pop-up Library  from 20 Sept to 31 Oct and at the Nelson City Council from 11 Oct to 23 Dec (in the display window on Halifax St).  A selection of images from the full exhibition will be showing at The Refinery ArtSpace from 31 Oct - 19 Nov 2022.  
Earth Emotions is a photography exhibition from our special place, Te Tau Ihu, the top of New Zealand’s South Island. We share personal experiences of the crises in Earth's climate, biodiversity, soils, atmosphere, waters and forests.  We're the first generations to feel the impact of these, and maybe the last who can do something about them. While that might feel overwhelming, it's our portal to a brighter future.
The five Earth Emotions galleries feature over 100 photographs by 47 photographers, an amazing response from people from all over the region. You can view the full exhibit online at using the links to each gallery:
In the Insight Gallery we share personal moments of clarity and understanding about the planetary crises.
In the Positive Emotions Gallery we honour our connections with Papatūānuku, Mother Earth, and share our feelings of excitement, curiosity, awe, empathy, gratitude, joy, love and hope.
In the Difficult Emotions Gallery we expose feelings of fear, shock, frustration, confusion, frustration and helplessness.
In the Response Gallery we explore attitudes and actions for meeting the planetary crises.
In the Visions Gallery we imagine the future.
Be patient, the galleries can take a few moments to load and make sure you read the captions accompanying each image. Click on More Details to view the image along with its caption.

We aim to inspire change by contributing to new narratives about the planetary emergency.
