Please find attached information on a unique summer course in Ireland called “Global Ecologies Studio”. This 6 credit course ( 3 Studio, 3 Science ) is being offered at the Burren College of Art in Western Ireland. It is a joint project of the Partners in Academic Leadership in Sustainability ( PALS). This course is being specifically offered to students from AICAD Art and Design schools who are engaged with issues of the environment and social justice. It will be an intensive 4 week experience where students will be immersed in an exploration of their studio practice while examining varying concepts found in ecology and earth systems.
Below you will find two pdf’s, one is a poster for the class with a course description. The other has further information about PALS and this exciting multi institutional offering. It also has the bio’s of the two faculty leading the course. The website for registration is https://www.burrencollege.
