The Perennial Institute is an experimental educational program created to explore the boundaries of art and design practice through the lens of plants. The Perennial Institute was founded by artists and designers Jai McKenzie and Julka Almquist.
Plants play an important role in human experience, history and our shared future – they feed us, heal us, and give us life. Perennial Institute explores how creative thinkers can deepen connections with this important resource, and expand the creative practice. Plants are our overlooked teachers, and by spending time with them, listening to them, and exploring their possibilities, we can grow together, for a better future.
The program brings together creatives, cooks, scientists, foragers, herbalists and more in the pursuit of experiences, knowledge, experimental practices and new awareness. (The summer education program will take place in Berlin from August 19-25, 2018.)
