Creative Frame is delighted to host an online introductory talk on Ecoliteracy with Dr Cathy Fitzgerald on Tuesday March 28th at 11am.
A former science researcher, ecological artist-researcher and independent online educator at Haumea Ecoversity (HaumeaEcoversity.ie), Cathy will share an online presentation and rich overview about why Ecoliteracy (ecological – ecosocial – literacy) has profound implications for anyone working in the creative sector.
In the webinar Cathy will discuss why ecoliteracy and ecophilosophy can assist arts practitioners and professionals in developing impactful: creative practices, exhibitions, events, community art programs, art courses, and the crucial role of eco-literacy to sustain and add meaning to creative practice in these beyond urgent times.
Participants will gain an understanding how ecoliteracy can empower diverse creative practices, so creative practitioners’ work, in turn, can inspire audiences and communities embrace new ideas and new ways of living well for personal, collective and planetary wellbeing. There will also be lots of opportunity to discuss your own work and experiences with other members of Creative Frame.
