About SocieCity

SocieCity is an ecological art and media studio by Patrick M. Lydon (USA) and Suhee Kang (Korea). Working together with an international cast of people and organizations across multiple disciplines, we produce art projects and stories that re-connect people and the places they live with nature.

You can read more about our partners on the Team page.

What we Do

We produce:

  • Stories / articles, essays, and films that illuminate the transitions of people, nature, and place
  • Actions / art exhibitions & installations, workshops & community building projects that are artist-led and centered around local ecology, nature, and culture, yet informed by global knowledge and networks

Our Goal

To build resilient cultural roots for long-term social and ecological well-being by re-connecting people and the places they live with nature.

Etymology of ‘SocieCity’

Socie : /səˈsaɪ.ə/ from Latin ‘socius’ (sharing, community, kindred)
City : /ˈsɪti/ from Latin ‘civis’ (to settle, home, love)

The name SocieCity is a call to re-connect ourselves as communities, not only within our cities, but within our larger biological home and human settlement, known as Earth.
