Tomorrow at SOE KITCHEN 101 in Reykjavik – artist Raul Walch is conducting a kite-making workshop. Since 2015, Raul Walch has been developing various flying objects and kites with students, refugees, and artist groups. Continuing his engagement with SOE Kitchen 101, Walch is initiating a participatory kite-making workshop that will lead to collective flying experiments. During the workshop, families are welcome to build their own polymorphic and colourful objects, which will float above the Reykjavik harbour at the end of the workshop day.

#climaterefugees #assistedmigration When the climate changes, so do the living conditions for living species. People and animals can, to a certain extent, migrate on their own, but are plants able to migrate at a fast enough speed, and could assisted migration or augmented ecology play a role? Artist Theun Karelse did an experiment in ‘assisted-migration’ at Nida Art Colony by introducing a sample of three lichen species from Portugal to Lithuania as official climate refugees, in association with Neringa Forestry Department. Theun writes in his Fieldguide to Next Doggerland: ‘For some species, keeping up with the northward shift of habitats may be challenging. A bird can migrate quite easily, but mosses for instance might be far too slow. Assisted migration is a controversial ecological technique that proposes to help the slower species reach northern grounds by manually taking them there. During the Techno Ecologies residency in Nida Art Colony I brought a lichen sample collected during a previous project in Spain to present it officially at the National Park as a climate refugee. The small lichen sample, containing three separate species, served as a starter for this complex discussion. The request for asylum was officially accepted by the head of the forestry department, who assumed the little guys would die immediately in winter. After an extensive visual survey of the Curonian Spit lichen populations, I found a wonderful spot close to the Art Colony where all three species on my little branch had Lithuanian cousins. Remarkably, this is at the site of a prehistoric settlement. The specimen thereby joined a rich local history of climate travellers. During the Techno Ecologies symposium in spring the next year I immediately went to pay my Spanish friends a visit, and you know what? They survived the winter!' www.theunkarelse.net
