Video : Phuket Artists on Global Warming & Environmental Issues (2011)

This short video is a News Report from Andaman News on NBT TV in Thailand. It looks at the 'Human & Earth' Exhibition held at a Cafe / Shop and Gallery in Phuket, Thailand in September 2011. The Exhibition was organised by a group of independent artists around the themes of global warming and environmental issues. The event included both music and visual arts.

It includes interviews with some of the artists and shows a variety of work by these artists. As you can see, their work is about issues such as : The critical state of Thai marine life, waste and debris floating on and in the sea, declining fish numbers and turtle numbers locally. Some of the art works use and recycle materials which would otherwise be regarded as 'waste'.
