Description

Ready-to-go, vetted approaches for facilitating artistic environmental projects

How do we educate those who feel an urgency to address our environmental and social challenges? What ethical concerns do art-makers face who are committed to a deep green agenda? How can we refocus education to emphasize integrative thinking and inspire hope? What role might art play in actualizing environmental resilience?

Compiled from 67 members of the Ecoart Network, a group of more than 200 internationally established practitioners, Ecoart in Action stands as a field guide that offers practical solutions to critical environmental challenges. Organized into three sections—Activities, Case Studies, and Provocations—each contribution provides models for ecoart practice that are adaptable for use within a variety of classrooms, communities, and contexts.

Educators developing project and place-based learning curricula, citizens, policymakers, scientists, land managers, and those who work with communities (human and other) will find inspiration for integrating art, science, and community-engaged practices into on-the-ground environmental projects. If you share a concern for the environmental crisis and believe art can provide new options, this book is for you!

This is an interesting and informative book with hands-on projects. It would be great for personal use or to create lesson plans for students of all ages.

I think I’m going to try and get this book for my library. The projects are really interesting and I think it would be a good way to get more people in and also teach them about eco art in the process.
However, I wouldn’t recommend this for someone that is looking for more of an inspirational type of book. Educators for teen and older would likely get the most from this book

This is such a well organized and creative idea! I will be telling my friends who are teachers about it. I love the structure and outlines of each project and how they coordinate.
