About the Campaign
Inspired by our collaboration with the Philharmonia Orchestra and their Artist in Residency with Love Ssega, we invite you to explore your role as a future ancestor, and the part you can play in creating a better future.
With thanks to Nat Kelley for the introductory video, which premiered on June 8th 2023 as the preface to Love Ssega and the Philharmonia's 'Pangea Act 1'.
Through this hub you will find inspiration and resources to help you to explore how you can be a good future ancestor.
There has never been, nor will ever be, another like you. You carry the hopes and dreams of all those who have gone before. Hopes and dreams of a better world. What will you do with your time on this Earth? How will you contribute to the ongoing story of humankind?Laurence Overmire

We can all be indigenous to a place, if we live as if our children’s future mattered, taking care of the land as if our lives, material and spiritual depended on it.Robin Wall Kimmerer

The inspiration behind this campaign came from Love Ssega's Artist in Residency with the Philharmonia Orchestra, which culminated in Pangea: a new work exploring climate refugees and presenting a positive vision of hope to leave you thinking like future ancestors.
