AN URGENT CONVERSATION FOR THE ARTS IN IRELAND

Dr. Cathy Fitzgerald’s invitation to talk in Galway came after being invited by Dr. Nessa Cronin, Prof Karen Till, and Prof Gerry Kearns to share her research last year at the 50th Conference of Irish Geographers in Maynooth University in May 2018. For her presentation in Galway, in the West of Ireland, Nessa invited her to present an overview of her study on the absence of arts policy for the eco-social emergencies in Ireland by first presenting how these concerns arose from her long-term eco-social art practice The Hollywood Forest Story (begun in 2008). [A video and podcast version of her seminar are included].
