How can the stories we tell bring us into greater intimacy with the ecosystems we inhabit? In this short workshop, we will explore eco-sensual writing and see how this mental space can invite us to imagine ways to playfully disrupt the capitalist and patriarchal domination that characterizes most landscapes nowadays. A joint writing session will follow a short reading of eco-sensual texts and poems. Participants are invited to bring something tangible from the more-than-human world that speaks to them.

Jori(k) Amit Galama (1992) moves between literature, fine arts, and documentary film. After studying philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, and Image and Language at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, they were selected for the Slow Writing Lab. In 2021 they finished their master's in Artistic Research in and through Cinema at the Netherlands Film Academy (with distinction). Their fiction stories and art criticism have been published in De Revisor, Kluger Hans, Tirade, Tubelight, and Metropolis M, as well as in various artists' publications. In 2022 they won the jury prize from the Flemish-Dutch erotic writing competition Het Rode Oor.
