Birds of a Feather

Created by: NEST Arts Collective

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for ‘Birds of a Feather’ comes from the values within NEST Arts Collective’s mission statement and the visual metaphors they use to describe those values. NEST Arts Collective is all about unique individuals coming together to share, inspire and support each other’s creative art practice. This design, ‘Birds of a Feather’, brings together a collection of unique native birds, which have been painted across the surface of the penguin – NEST Arts Collective thinks this concept links well to Pop Up Penguins and Christchurch as an example of community spirit and creative collaboration.

 

Top Right: Kia Manawaroa

Created by: Morgan Mathews-Hale (Kaitiaki Studios)

Design Inspiration

‘Kia Manawaroa’ is a reference to one of the artist’s whānau’s favourite animated penguins, Tank Evans. For Pop Up Penguins, Morgan has created this in a contemporary Te Waipounamu Māori style. This artwork relates to our urban resilience in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. A city positively adapting and transforming amongst a series of trying times, as we continue to navigate our collective wellbeing and inclusive growth.

Update on the sale of the Penguins

Just over $1 million has been netted for the sale of more than 50 giant penguin sculptures in Christchurch.

 

The Pop Up Penguins art trail enlivened Canterbury after the sculptures were installed in public places between Rangiora and Akaroa in December and January.

 

Thousands of people visited the sculptures, which were decorated by some of New Zealand’s most exciting artists.

 

The sculptures were sold at auction on Wednesday evening with about 75 per cent of the proceeds going to the Cholmondeley Children's Centre.

 

Wild in Art event producer Claire Cowles, who helped organise Pop Up Penguins, said the sales totalled $1,007,300, with the Shy-no-more and Mischievous penguins netting the most at $36,000 each.

A young boy sits on top of a flood protection wall in Metro Manila. An informal community is settled under this bridge in a part of the river that is especially vulnerable to floods. Flood markers have been put in place to provide additional warning to the community - so that they can move to higher ground in case of an emergency. But the core of the problem is of lack of access to viable housing, employment and services that drives people to live in such vulnerable locations.

The Neighborhood Resilient

 

We believe that neighborhoods are a fundamental unit of urban resilience. After a significant disruption, there needs to be at least one place in each neighborhood that has structural integrity, locally-self-reliant power, communications and connectivity, up-to-date information about the local community (and local knowledge of the community) and perhaps even local fabrication tools. In other words, a community resilience hub that empowers citizens to self-organize and self-serve.

 

On June 25th, Frog Design and The Pomegranate Center facilitated a special, day-long collaborative design charrette, which will bring together a network of 150 community leaders, designers, architects, technologists, social innovators, government leaders, disaster response experts, citizens, educators, funders and others to explore how such hubs in different neighborhoods—and regions—might work.

As Memories of Sandy Fade, What Lessons Have Measurably Shaped Public-Private Partnerships in Ways that Bolster Urban Resilience?

On June 24, PopTech, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Brooklyn Academy of Music convened a network of citizens, stakeholders, scientists, designers, innovators and leaders in Brooklyn, New York for a unique summit on urban resilience.

 

Amid this volatility, cities serve as both the epicenters of vulnerability, and the crucibles of resilience.

 

And this raises a host of important questions: How do we empower communities to improve their self-reliance and act effectively on their own behalf? How do we build new social networks and social capital that cuts across socioeconomic lines? How do we physically build more resilient urban places and more resilient infrastructure? How do we use distributed technologies and ‘big data’ to sense and respond to emerging risks? How can new tools and platforms allow for rapid, creative responses to urban disruption? What are the roles of culture, of the arts and humanities?

 

What is the role of leaders, of all types – governmental, corporate, social sector, citizen/volunteer – in bolstering resilience?

This poster describes a joint project which is researching resilience in livelihood systems in seven sites in Bangladesh.

 

The poster was displayed at the 10th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA10) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and was selected as the winning poster by conference delegates.

 

The authors say:

 

Gibika is a five-year research-to-action partnership between the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), and Munich Re-Foundation (MRF) with the objective to improve the living conditions of people in seven project sites in Bangladesh.

 

When livelihood systems are not resilient, environmental shocks can have long-term impacts on human well-being and development goals. By implementing community-led actions, this project promotes livelihood resilience and sustainable development.

 

In keeping with the theme of CBA10, 'Urban resilience to climate change', we focussed our poster on our urban site Bhola Slum where the majority of inhabitants are climate-induced migrants from Bhola Island.

 

These slum dwellers migrated because of the 1971 Bhola cyclone as well as continued riverbank erosion, leading them to where they are today. Migration to Dhaka provided them with diversified livelihood opportunities: yet at the same time caused an identity crisis and a loss of attachment from their original home.

 

In the poster, we provide a brief overview of the different environmental stressors the inhabitants face: heat waves, floods, and water logging. Secondary consequences of these environmental stressors include health issues and added expense. There are currently several NGOs and government agencies working at Bhola Slum, provide infrastructure and livelihood support.

The Building Resilience of the Urban Poor project aims increase the resilience of six urban communities in Bangladesh, with a particular focus of women and girls.

 

This poster outlines key issues being tackled and progress to date. It sets out lessons learned, including the importance of community mobilisation and participatory analysis of community risks and action planning. The project also highlighted the negative impact of domestic violence on the resilience of women and the importance of separating men and women during the process of prioritising hazards and planning.

 

This poster was displayed at the 10th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA10) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in April 2016.

This poster describes a study analysing the perceptions about urban resilience to climate change and disasters within the private sector in Nepal.

 

The survey results indicated that most respondents had poor knowledge about climate change, although a high proportion reported that they had been affected.

 

The survey showed that only a small percentage of respondents had allocated budgets for climate change responses. The majority reported that they lacked information on the potential impacts on business profitability and about technological solutions.

 

The study concludes that there are ample opportunities for enhancing private sector engagement in urban resilience to climate change and disasters in Nepal.

 

This poster was displayed at the 10th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA10) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in April 2016.

Art + Research Center students toured Sunset Harbour and visited the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science with urban geographer Stephanie Wakefield.

 

Stephanie Wakefield is an urban geographer and visiting Assistant Professor in Culture and Media at Eugene Lang College at The New School. She has written and organized extensively around the political and philosophical questions of the Anthropocene, exploring it as a threshold moment of both great potential and catastrophe. She is finalizing a book on the being, time and politics of oysters, ‘living infrastructures’ of urban resilience in post-Sandy New York. Her new research explores urban ‘experimentation’ as a mode of dwelling in the Anthropocene and emancipatory possibilities offered by the concept of the ‘back loop.’ Her work has been published in diverse venues including May, Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, Progress in Human Geography, and The Brooklyn Rail.
