As Creative Drummin – Druimín Cruthaitheach, led by the Carlow Arts Office, and involving council staff, creative practitioners Jules Michael, Carole Nelson, cultural researchers and involving training from Cathy Fitzgerald’s Haumea Ecoversity – begins work on a new creative learning and community ecosocial engagement initiative funded by the Arts Council of Ireland Invitation to Collaboration 2022 Award – Gnáthóga Nádúrtha: (Natural Habitats) – a 3-county council, Carlow creative learning and engagement programme with Kildare and Meath, we were delighted to hear news of this online seminar today (it is being recorded).

We congratulate the Arts Council of Ireland, Offaly and Mayo County Arts Services and their creative practitioners and researchers over many years, and invited local and international artists, for organising this rich online seminar today as an Arts Council ‘Invitation to Collaborate’ ‘Art in the Landscape’ seminar to share their long experience in evolving embedded-in-place creative ecosocial art practices.

Such creative practices can encourage deep cultural change across communities to inspire enduring ways to better relate to and care for our environments for personal, collective and planetary wellbeing.

The seminar is online and free to attend today on 25 May 2022 see
