Visualising our beautiful Earth emotions invites us to care and act for a better world – reflecting on Navine G. Dossos’ murals at IMMA

Launched over a month ago, in this post I reflect on the social power of visualising our ecological emotions through artist Navine G. Knossos’ Kind Words Can Never Die wall murals, now on display for all visitors to the courtyard of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) for several years. This vibrant, vitalising colourfield behind the colonnade of IMMA’s courtyard also encircled and energised many of the events for IMMA’s inaugural Earth Rising – 3 day ecoart festival 21-23 October 2022, both visually and symbolically. I was delighted and honoured to mentor Navine in ecoliteracy before this ambitious commission.

Haumea Ecoversity proposes UNESCO-endorsed Earth Charter values and vision framework for Irish Arts Council Climate Action Policy

I was excited this week to present at the Irish Art Council and Julies’ Bicycle EU Climate Action Policy Roundtable discussions by and for the Irish creative sector. In wide-ranging discussions about ‘Arts Council funding as a driver for climate action, capacity-building and support for the creative sector, for unlocking leadership and innovation’ and general conversations about what might policy for the sector might include – I was proud to share findings from Haumea Ecoversity Earth Charter learners work.
