Antigua & Barbuda

Environmental Justice as a Civil Right



Commissioner: Melville Richardson Education Officer - Visual Arts, Ministry of Education Science and Technology, Antigua and Barbuda

Venue: Don Orione Artigianelli, Dorsoduro 919

Description

Antigua and Barbuda’s inaugural National pavilion explores environmental justice as a civil right through an investigation into the acute crisis of climate change facing this island nation. Situated in a fifteenth-century monastery in the heart of Venice, the National pavilion explores three sites in Antigua and Barbuda through a combination of architectural models, artefacts, and drawings to examine the relationship between architecture and the environment:
1. Rebuilding Barbuda
2. Botanical Gardens
3. Government House Restoration Initiative included on the World Monuments Watch 2018
The sites presented are linked by innovative stakeholder partnerships that seek to address present-day environmental challenges. In keeping with this collaborative spirit, the pavilion serves as a space for dialogue and a meeting place for a diverse audience that includes students, the differently abled, environmental groups and visitors.
