Abner Delina (Philippines)

Nurturing Youth Leadership for Climate Justice

Session Synopsis

How can teaching artists reclaim ecological consciousness in times of crisis?

In the March Think Tank, ITAC IMPACT: Climate artist Abner Torres Delina Jr. shared his ITAC project, SACLAW (the Social Actions Community Leadership Arts Workshop)—an arts camp for climate-action that cultivates young artist leaders in the Philippines. Abner, also shared how the eco-embodiment practice of KA-MA-LAYA-AN can nurture care-culture and reconnect us with the Earth and our ecological self.

Initially developed as an embodiment exercise, this practice can facilitate a safe space for artists, educators, leaders, and creatives from all fields to rediscover their artistic identities, re-align with their higher purpose, and pursue their creative visions for climate action.
