In late 2018, realising the urgent need to share ecoliteracy learning with the arts sector following my doctoral art and ecology practice research, and having a unique background in research science as well as contemporary art practice, I investigated a key concern that I noted in the conclusion of my PhD. That there is an overlooked potential to reach creative workers about urgent ecological learning.
In 2019, I was very grateful to the Carlow Enterprise Board for assisting in my evaluations to develop an online Ecoversity, and to the Carlow Arts Office to develop a 1-day seminar on this topic in my county.
