“Eco Art” as a Tool for Social Change


We will explore how some “eco-artists” are bringing permaculture awareness and solutions to a wider audience.

In this workshop we will review some ways in which eco-artists apply what we could think of as permaculture principals, in their artwork. Some eco-art actually demonstrates solutions to environmental problems, that look very much like permaculture interventions. Perhaps a fertile cross pollination is possible between these two “movements”. Or at the very least it is beneficial for us to be aware of what eco-artists are up to!

This will be a straight ahead slideshow, with some discussion, not a hands-on workshop. It will help to grow our movement by bringing awareness about the work of other folks (artists) who are addressing similar environmental issues that permaculture addresses. Perhaps future collaborations could result.
