Autumn 2020: Popular HAUMEA Online Essential Ecoliteracy Course for Creatives & Art Professionals (curators, arts officers, art educators & art administrators)–with Cathy Fitzgerald, PhD.
I’m delighted to share that my popular course will be offered again this Autumn.
The course will run from the 16 September–4 November 2020. Please book early to secure your place here
The course has now expanded from 6 to 7 weeks following feedback from previous participants who wanted to spend more time on the material and the course. So many participants enjoyed the sharing and learning together, especially the (optional) Live Weekly Group meetings.
Again, I am offering a few places for one-on-one mentoring too. (Mentoring sessions are now full)
Given the interest in this course, this time around I am offering the weekly Haumea Live Group meetings on both Tuesday and Wednesdays – participants can choose which day suits them best. There will be a maximum of 20 people in each class.
The Haumea Live Group meetings are the heart of the Haumea courses; they become an intimate, ‘art salon’ experience. We share insights, challenges and creative endeavours that motivate us all. This connection is especially supportive in these uncertain and urgent times.

CLOSING DATE IS 14 SEPT: BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.
New Haumea Online Course Update: 'Creativity as an Act of LOVE' with philosopher Nikos Patedakis, PhD
My colleague, philosopher Nikos Patedakis, PhD., gave his first pilot course 'Creativity as an Act of Love' on the Haumea course platform during August - September 2020.
If you are interested in deeper contemplation of how our culture has promoted alienation from the wider community of life, I highly recommend Nikos Patedakis 'Creativity as an Act of Love' course. Nikos will help you develop am 'ecology of mind' philosophy and an ethical direction for your creative practice or work.
As a former university philosophy educator, it is so special to share Nikos' eco-mindful philosophy on the Haumea platform. In these uncertain and urgent times, Nikos, like me, is keen to share his essential ecophilosophy knowledge beyond academia, and especially to creatives and educators.
Nikos has astonishing in-depth knowledge of philosophy–wisdom teachings–from around the world (from ancient Western, Eastern and Indigenous cultures and from the nonhuman world–horses are his great love). Such insights can help our thinking, practices, and living so our creativity aligns for a better, more beautiful world. I am so grateful too, as our joint perspectives means we continually learn from each others' philosophy and creative worlds.
I joined Nikos' pilot course with others from around the world. He shared sensitive, ethical and very practical practices and insights for our creative practices, and our lives in general. There was a general feeling that many of the practices and new thinking would guide our work long into the future.
Nikos will be refining his material and offering this course again in the coming months too. Thank you so much Nikos.
So do sign up to get updates about this course too!

About Haumea Ecoliteracy Essentials On-Line Course Development
During February 2019, I was awarded a Carlow Local Enterprise Feasibility Study Award to explore online course development with support from the Carlow Local Enterprise Office and business mentor Bernie Tracey. The Feasibility Study Award allowed me mentorship with the Canadian Online Course Builders Laboratory by MIRASEE and award-winning Irish art-business-tech mentor Mary Carty. I delivered a live ecoliteracy workshop in November 2019, with the support of the Carlow Arts Office and the course programme has been greatly enriched with the knowledge and experience of Dr Nikos Patedakis and Veronica Larsson. Thank you all!
