This session combined a talk by artist David Haley, with a round table discussion. Participants were also invited to book a short slot to give an informal presentation about a relevant project, work or future plans.
Dr David Haley PhD Hon FCIWEM makes art with ecology, to inquire and learn. He works internationally with ecosystems and their inhabitants, using images, poetic texts, walking and sculptural installations to question climate change, species extinction, urban development, transdisciplinarity and ‘capable futures’.
David’s talk will include a presentation about VIEWPOINT, his recent project about the confluence of the rivers Cocker and Derwent, the heritage and ecology of Cockermouth and the transformative challenges presented by climate change.
