Pedagogy in the Pub: Young People, Education and the Arts of Living in the Anthropocene with Aviva Ree

"Pedagogy in the Pub" is a series of discussions where invited speakers critically engage with the SDGs. The June speaker will be interdisciplinary visual ecologist, Aviva Reed.


UNESCO UNEVOC@ the School of Education RMIT, and the EU Centre at RMIT, in collaboration with the Royal Society of Arts (RSA ANZ), aspire to play a role in promoting conversations about the SDGs, particularly: SDG 4, SDG 5 and SDG 8.

"Pedagogy in the Pub" is a series of discussions where invited speakers critically engage with the SDGs. The June speaker will be interdisciplinary visual ecologist, Aviva Reed.
Aviva's practice explores scientific theories, particularly concepts associated with evolution and the ecological imagination. Her work aims to explore time and scale using storytelling, visualisations, soundscapes and physical movement to explore emergent systems occurring through complexity.

Aviva will take as her starting point target 4.7 of SDG 4, which states:
By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.

Her response will draw on the work that she does with young people to explore the following questions:

  • How do we build the skills to articulate and understand underlying power dynamics, have the hard conversations, sit with our grief and shame and encourage relational ethics with all living things?
  • How can art, stories and histories help us to imagine ourselves and our communities as being truly inter-connected, as being-in-this-trouble together, as having to figure-this-out together.
