Ecotopian Library, 2020 Website: www.ecotopianlibrary.com

Ecotopian Library is a long term project that stems from the belief that art and ecotopian thought can be part of cultivating systemic social change. The toolkit combines disciplines of forestry, botany, art, literature, and the sciences asking people who classify themselves as artists, scholars, librarians, neighbors, scientists, indigenous knowledge holders, and writers to contribute stories, objects, digital files, experiences, or books to build a toolkit for regenerative futures within climate change. I look at each thing as a tool for sensing through and building upon. The Ecotopian Library was supported by the University of Colorad at Boulder's Art Museum (CUAM), and is on view at the CUAM through July 2020. Since it is place-based and it travels, it accumulates tools as it moves. Photos below by Jeff Wells.
