ECOLITERACY is crucial for all cultural activity in these urgent times.
No matter what part of the creative sector you work in, gaining ecoliteracy helps you develop era-changing impactful creative practices, exhibitions, events, community art programmes, or cultural leadership policy for a better, more beautiful world.
We are in the midst of a profound cultural catastrophe. We need to urgently foster an enormous paradigm shift to a life-sustaining and just culture. To do this, we need to learn to live well with the Earth and all its inhabitants. Expansive integrated concepts, words and practices from ecological philosophy and ethics, as well as environmental knowledge are crucial to overcome the ecocidal misperception that humanity is separate from the wellbeing of the wider community of life.

“Hi, my name is Cathy Fitzgerald. Raised in Aotearoa New Zealand, now living in Ireland, the home of my ancestors–I’m passionate that the arts have a critical, yet under-acknowledged potential to inspire diverse communities on how to live well with the Earth and its inhabitants.
In these urgent times, you may be like increasing numbers of creative workers, art educators, art students, curators and art professionals wishing to engage effectively with ecosocial concerns.
However, you may soon realise this topic is complex and that ecological knowledge for creative practices is not currently prioritised in art education or understood across the art sector.
Through Haumea Ecoliteracy Services, I can help you navigate the ecological philosophy, ethics and environmental science, so you can develop impactful, Earth-aligned creative work for your audiences, communities and art organisations.
