Extending on the pressing, poetic and ambitious works that are encountered in the natural environment during the Floating Land Biennale, the Floating Land Symposium provides a platform for in-depth discussion and a sharing of ideas around art’s ability to engage with the environment during a period of unprecedented urgency for action and change.
