So delighted that I’ll be visiting Kilkenny, Eire in November with Ruth Ben-Tovim and Lucy Neal to co-facilitate the Art of Invitation and helping host a day of discussion around Culture Declares Climate Emergency. We have been invited by the Butler Gallery and Orlaith Treacy, curator and participant on Art of Invitation at Schumacher College back in 2018.
I have just started my fellowship with SWCTN (see here). SWCTN is a network led by University of West of England in partnership with Watershed Bristol, Kaleider in Exeter, Bath Spa University and the University of Plymouth and Falmouth University. I’m researching ‘innovation at a time of climate and ecological breakdown and how a specific place (Exmouth) can test local responses for global impact.’ This will be focusing on the emerging Tidelines project with Jo Salter – a creative research hub for the changing marine and estuary environment in Exmouth (more on that next post). I’m currently curating Celebrating Trees here in Exmouth as part of my residency with Wild Exmouth for 23 November and inviting a collective exploration of what we can learn from trees and how we can create a shared vision for trees in and around our town. Finally doing a spot of teaching with Tom at Exeter University’s Global Systems Institute…and there are some apples that need picking..
