Linzi Lewis: eco-warrior for environmental awareness


Linzi Lewis wears many hats. She describes herself as an urban geographer and ethno-botanist. Fiercely protective of her Mother Earth, she says she is constantly mindful of her relationship between herself and the planet.

Constantly looking for ways where art and science collide Lewis uses arts facilitation techniques for shared learning. Lewis, also a dancer, is a woman of action and works at a grass roots level. In 2011 she galvanised an “AMbush revolution” and formed the AMbush Eco-Art Collective. This is “a collective of eco-artist-activists, sustainable designers, social change makers, performers, recyclers and ‘evolutionaries'”, she says.
