About SocieCity

SocieCity is an award-winning ecological art and media studio that works internationally to inspire insightful, empathic relationships between people and the living world around us.

The Studio is led by Patrick M. Lydon and Suhee Kang, accomplished ecological art practitioners, filmmakers, and writers who work with an international cast of collaborators and organizations across multiple disciplines. You can read more about our partners on the Team page.

Our Work takes place in two main focus areas:

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

Our Goal is to build resilient cultural roots for long-term social and ecological well-being.

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 within our cities, and within our larger shared home, this earth which is the home of every human being.
