Public Conversations on Ecology

Finding Ecologies presents a series of monthly public discussions in which we explore ecological frameworks across many different contexts: from mental and public health to the natural and built environment; from culture, aesthetics and the creative arts, to patterns of energy consumption, extraction and growth.

The heat of the global climate emergency touches each of us, and asks for a personal reckoning with new ecologies environmental; technological; cultural and artistic; human and animal.

Whilst Timothy Morton’s ‘interconnectedness’ may be a good starting point, the articulation of off-grid, unorthodox networks of sustenance might now be a necessary step towards maintaining an ecological sensibility by which we all might live and thrive, with or without anxiety.

To this end, Finding Ecologies seeks to articulate and examine the great varieties of ecological operation at play. It seeks to find similarities and differences of expression and operation across disciplines, to promote academic and public discussion and understanding of the ecological.
