Ancient Cultures Nature Trek: From Japan to Europe and Points Between (June)

Kajikazawa in Kai Province by Katsushika Hokusai

Postponed to August 10.
From the Egyptian reverence of the Nile River to the Industrial Revolution of Great Britain to the Japanese reliance on fishing, this workshop will give you a fascinating overview of the relationship that different cultures have had with the environment with sometimes devastating results.

Divided into two parts, the first part will inlcude tours through the galleries of Japan, Greece, Egypt, and Europe. The second part of the workshop will be an in-depth tour of the Schad Gallery of Biodiversity. Here we will examine various ecosystems and the interconnections of the communities linking to the cultures examined in the first half. This component will examine environmental issues within each of the areas including various success stories.

See the galleries like never before in this fascinating workshop taking advantage of the fact that the ROM is a unique museum combining both world cultures and natural history.
