Part One will focus on curatorial and academic perspectives, exploring the relationships between ecological research, artistic practice and public engagement. Questions explored will include: What kind of ecological knowledge do we need to creatively navigate our way through crisis and uncertainty? How can ecological expertise inform creative practice? Are we all ecologists now?
