A Special Screening: The Watchman
27th January 2023
We are delighted to be hosting an incredibly special screening and talk, in partnership with renowned artists Martin Aveling and Alicia Hayden, exploring how creatives of all ages can get involved in wildlife and environmental conservation.
Held on Friday 27th January, we urge any young aspiring artists or conservationists to join us to listen, connect, learn and get inspired about fighting the current environmental crisis and explore how art can be used as a vital conservation tool to protect our natural world and its habitants.
Winner of DSWF’s Wildlife Artist of the Year 2021 ‘Art of Survival’ Award, Martin Aveling, will be discussing the necessity of conservation in modern day art and the growing movement of ‘artivism‘. We will then unveil a new film documentary by Alicia Hayden (DSWF Human Impact Award winner 2021), which follows Zimbabwean artist and DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year finalist, Tichaona Ncube, also known as ‘The Watchman‘
The film shows how Tich uses art to communicate how wildlife is a part of all of us, drawing attention to the beauty and fragility of Africa’s wildlife, and ultimately how we all have a part to play in halting species extinction.
