Climate Recipes

Climate Recipes is an itinerant research project envisioned as a growing archive of intergenerational wisdom relayed from conversations with people committed to the issues of land and the environment. They are concise, intimate, everyday instructions from architects, journalists, scientists, activists, artists, and farmers that suggest different ways of reorienting our vision for a flourishing planet. They are entry points for an adaptable life suggesting diverse ways of farming, foresting, sharing, listening, and living.

We meet with experts in the areas of land, environment, and climate and have conversations about their work. These conversations are synthesized into short recipes and presented through text, illustrative drawings, exhibitions, and public programs.

Climate Recipes is curated by Srinivas Aditya Mopidevi & Srinivas Mangipudi and supported by Pollinator.io and Socratus Collective Wisdom Corporation

Goa Edition

Twenty-five experts from Goa – environmentalists, foragers, academics, urban planners, eco-architects, chefs, farmers, poets and others – offer life recipes from their lived experiences of the environment. They collectively call to realign with the ‘flow of our existing planetary system and find sites of refuge’ in the wake of climate adversity.

Climate Recipes premiered as part of this.generation exhibition at Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts (2023).

The Goa edition of Climate Recipes is presented by Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts in collaboration with Pollinator.io and Socratus Collective Wisdom Corporation.

Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Edition

The Andhra Pradesh and Telangana edition of the project focuses on conversations around natural farming and agroecological practices, restoration of biodiversity, and community well-being. The climate recipes in this edition are gathered from conversations with experts in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and are represented within the gallery space as drawings and spatial installations.

The Andhra Pradesh and Telangana edition + exhibition of Climate Recipes is presented at Dhi Contemporary, Hyderabad in collaboration with Pollinator.io and Socratus Collective Wisdom Corporation.

Bhitarkanika Research Document

This research document extends the methodology of the Climate Recipes project to reflect on the mangrove ecosystem and the interspecies relationships in the Bhitarkanika forest area and the National Park. Today, the Bhitarkanika ecosystem is caught between the wellbeing of the national park’s wildlife and the people who live on its land. There are ecological and economic challenges the national park area deals with that need to be surfaced and addressed. This edition focuses on the potential activation of the local economy and a balanced relationship between humans and wildlife.

This research document was presented by Socratus Foundation for Collective Wisdom in collaboration with Nature’s Club, Kendrapara.
