MA students
18 December 2023 - 11 March 2024
Online exhibition

What happens when nature and culture come together? Explore hidden truths, plant wonders and epic tales of myth and legend.

People Living with Nature takes you through the intertwined history of plants and culture and weaves contemporary perspectives to consider your own future interactions with the natural world.

Explore new ways to reconnect with nature and appreciate its beauty. Ask yourself the question is there a way I can approach nature more mindfully?

This online exhibition is curated by a group of MA students from the University of Leeds using the online collection of the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
