EarthDrawn Media Productions is a graphic harvesting project for environmental and social regeneration started by Claire Rousell (Stories of Seed) & katty vandenberghe (kindEarth_intentions) in 2021, combining our respective skill sets, experience and activism to co-create conscientious and impactful messaging.
Claire Rousell (Stories of Seed)
Claire is an artist, writer, activist and researcher focused on the intersection of extractivism, food sovereignty, social justice and art. Her work takes a variety of forms including graphic harvesting, animation, poetry, and she is currently completing a Masters in Environmental Humanities at the University of Cape Town (2022). She believes that graphic harvesting and animated live drawing are powerful educational tools that have a special way of helping us to visualise the challenges and opportunities we face in organisations and social movements.
