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.
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.
Navine contacted me as she has undertaken an exciting and important commission for the Irish Museum of Modern Art which has an important ecological perspective.
