About the project This project will explore the tribal culture of the Yawanawá people of Brazil along with the vegetation and wildlife that can be found in the rainforest – taking you on a journey to discover your own connection to the forest, through art. Through the project, we will be connecting children, using art and technology, with tribal culture, individual families in the tribe and the rainforest. By ‘meeting’ the rainforest John hopes that this will create a personal connection and bond to the rainforest and generate amazing pieces of art, along with lots of questions which can be answered by John himself as part of the live video broadcasts. About John Dyer John Dyer is an British contemporary painter, focusing on colourful landscapes, architecture, gardens and notable events, especially in Cornwall. His ‘naïve’ style makes his work accessible to all ages. John’s first published work, aged 12, was landscape photography in Amateur Photography magazine. In his Foundation year at Falmouth College of Arts he was already selling images to publishers like Athena.

About the project This project will explore the tribal culture of the Penan people of Malaysian Borneo and visit the critically endangered Bornean Orangutan – taking you on a journey to discover your own connection to the forest, through art. Through the project, we will be connecting children, using art and technology, with tribal culture as well as the plants and animals that live in the rainforest.
