Store (for future)

Store (for future) was a commissioned work for the Emergence Summit held at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Macynlleth, Mid Wales. Artist Owen Griffiths joined the Institute for this project.

The Institute invited delegates of the Summit into the old Food Store at CAT, which was once the home of the ponies when the site was a quarry. In this place of gathering and preparing for an unknown future Owen Griffiths and Fern Thomas engaged the participants in a dialogue which focused on the ideas and thoughts around inner resources for moving into the future. Participants were invited in particular to share a memory or experience which they would call upon as a tool of enabling.

Some delegates also offered objects to go into this store including a contribution from The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home (the small plant pictured below).

The gathered material from the store will be turned into a film work which will be available online soon.
