The Turning Ground series of talks aims to create a space that brings artists, local communities, activists and academics together to discuss how creative ecologies and socio-ecological futures can be supported in an urban environment, particularly focusing on the Dublin 8 area. The talks, with international and national experts, will also be broadcast on NCAD’s YouTube channel.
The series was convened by The Digital Hub’s Artist-in-Residence Seoidín O’Sullivan and NCAD lecturer and artist Gareth Kennedy.
Topics covered include art and critical ecological practice, local Dublin 8 community ecological projects, urban city toolkits for climate justice, permacultures, and urban ecological mapping.
Bringing fresh perspectives on these topics are international speakers including Panagiota Kotsila (Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability), Margaretha Haughwout (Colgate University), Sinead Mercier (UCD Sutherland School of Law), and Mojisola Adebayo (Queen Mary, University of London) & Nicole Wolf (Goldsmiths, University of London), and Austin Campbell from Dublin 8’s Robert Emmet Community Development Project who will discuss the importance of ecological projects in a local community setting.
Events in the series are free to attend.
