Eco Poca is a visual art, eco-fashion, and performance art exhibit creating a “Ku-kan,” a space to experience the intersection of two alternate realities — a nuclear apocalypse, vs an advanced eco-society. The exhibit and panel discussion will address our ecological crisis, including the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster, while remembering and sharing our ancestors’ eco-wisdom and connection to nature. Art and Story-telling are powerful tools to reflect on the turmoil our planet is experiencing; we hope to transmute this global crisis by collectively envisioning and co-creating our eco-future.
