‘Kind Words Can Never Die’: Navine G. Kahn-Dossos at IMMA, mentored by Cathy Fitzgerald, Haumea Ecoversity

I was delighted recently to be contacted by visual artist Navine Kahn-Dossos who works between the UK and Athens and who lives in Greece. Navine had heard of my Haumea Ecoversity ecoliteracy training for professional creatives in Glenn Albrecht’s book Earth Emotions: New Words for a New World (2019), and wondered if I could offer her some online mentoring sessions.
