La Wayaka Current is an artist-led initiative. Our main focus is to develop ways to engage people with environmental and philosophical questions of our time through self-reflection, arts and culture. We are reacting to an increased loss of connection between humans and the natural world and the corresponding globalised socio-political and environmental problems that have arisen due to this distancing. We are reconnecting to remote natural environments to develop new perspectives through site-responsive creative practice.
Since 2015, we have developed site-responsive projects across our planet, to transmit into public exhibitions. Itinerant in our nature we lead expeditions for people to develop projects in vast natural environments. Here we develop fluid programs with local communities and partners, connecting to indigenous + ecological knowledge. We relate and connect to the daily life and reality of a place, to engage with relevant issues of our time. We are currently running residencies at specific dates in South and Central America and Northern Europe in Tropic 08°N, Arctic 70°N + Desert 23°S. Panama. Norway and Chile. We recently organised an exhibition in London involving a selection of work and research from over 40 intl. creative practitioners who have been involved supported by Arts Council England. We operate as a non-profit registered in England and Wales with company number 09802950.
