Korea Global Adaptation Week 2023
Gallery on Indigenous Values and Mindsets

Date: 2023

Location: Songdo, Korea

Project Team: Julia Waton + UNFCCC Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform

Client: Korea Global Adaptation Week

A gallery showcasing eco-technologies developed by Indigenous communities, rooted in traditional knowledge, offering valuable solutions for addressing climate challenges.

In August 2023, Julia Watson collaborated with the UNFCCC's Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples platform to create an exhibition for Korea Global Adaptation Week 2023, located in Songdo, Korea. The exhibition, titled the "Gallery of Indigenous Values and Minds," stemmed from a larger UNFCCC initiative called "R3 for Transformative Climate Action (Recognize to Recalibrate and Reset)." This is part of their on-going efforts not just recognize the importance of Indigenous values and worldviews in the climate change process, but more importantly, apply them in policies and actions at the national and sub national levels.

The gallery featured images of Indigenous technologies from Julia's first book, Lo—TEK Design by Radical Indigenism, and was on view for the entire duration of the international event.
