Overview

This Professional Diploma in Art and Ecology programme introduces learners to the contemporary and historical field of art and expanded ecologies through situated environmental learning.  This 20 credit programme consists of four 5 credit modules: Creative Principles (Professional Certificate), Creative Collaborations, Creative Practices, Creative Capstone. 

Using and responding to NCAD’s physical inner city location learners will connect with inspiring ecological practices, environmental justice community projects and artists spearheading this emerging field. With our current Earth crises we need to urgently develop new and necessary Nature/ Culture futures.  The historical, cultural and professional contexts of how artists operate and work with ecological themes and the current earth crisis will be explored in rich and varied ways.  

Utilising Eco creative principles students will explore a diversity of practices and approaches and become attuned to ways to practise in this territory.

Student testimonials

“I’ve been searching for a way to integrate my love and interest in the environment with my art practice beyond the traditional approach of direct visual representational art. This course really helped me to push my practice beyond that while staying true to my own working methods and creative process. As well as that, a collaborative and supportive environment was nurtured and encouraged throughout the course”

“The course exceeded my expectations and I feel that what we covered is just the tip of the iceberg. I can’t wait to explore everything we discussed and discovered together further”. 

“The lecturers’ enthusiasm, commitment and belief in this course was obvious and they made it a fruitful, diverse place of learning”
