Description

Becoming Ecological: Three workshops making art, learning science

Visual ecologist, Aviva Reed, will facilitate immersive afternoons of lecture, story and art based learning, in order to explore the complexity of ecology. Participants are invited to explore their own creative potential through the process of developing take home ecological portraits using collage, pencils and/or watercolour.

At the completion of each of these workshops, participants will have a richer, clearer understanding as to how to incorporate ecological knowledge into their everyday decision making processes, both at work and at home AND have a completed artwork!

Family friendly event.

Suit age 12 and up!

Evolutionary Thought: This session looks at evolutionary theory and its role in complex adaptive systems. This studio explores concepts such as cumulative change, adaption, resilience and how the distribution of energy has enabled diversity.
