Dispatch from Fruška Gora – Andrew Gryf Paterson

So there we were, sitting together in the terrace seating area of Višnja Kisić and Goran Tomka’s home, with visiting art-historian and pedagogue Milja Vuković from Beograd, as well as Sergey Dmitriev and myself, drinking tea, eating nuts, introducing ourselves to each other.“

Andrew Gryf Paterson is a Scottish ‘artist-organiser’, cultural producer, educator and independent researcher based in Helsinki, Finland. Andrew specialised in developing and leading inter- and trans- disciplinary projects exploring connections between art, digital culture and science, cultural activism, ecological and sustainability movements, cultural heritage and collaborative networks. 

As a laureate of the Rewilding Cultures mobility grant, he was able to embark on a slow travel from Finland to Serbia and Montenegro, to investigate what it means to be a climate migrant. During that journey he visited the Forest University, for a chat with nuts and tea, and a stay over.

Listen to our conversation and read a logbook from Andrew’s visit to Fruška Goran, including Šumska1 ecostead and the Forest University.
