Drs Iris Berger, Sarah Henessey and Kelly-Ann MacAlpine are hosting an online workshop, Earth Talks: An Eco-Printing and Soundscapes Workshop, in collaboration with the Co-imagining Better Futures with Children in Early Childhood Communities project and ECED 565: Climate Childhoods.

The workshop will feature local artist, Rachel Foster. In this arts-based virtual workshop, Rachel will discuss her own artistic practice and guide you on different techniques for creating your own eco-analogue material at home. Join us as we explore the concepts of biocultural memories and birdsong mapping, and how we can create approachable artistic narratives to communicate climate change issues.

About Rachel Foster

Rachel’s artistic work serves as a response to the decline in wildlife populations across the globe, a crisis driven by human activities such as habitat fragmentation, industrial expansion, and resource extraction. Through a multi-disciplinary approach using biological elements – like mammal skulls, sonograms, soil, textiles, and raindrops – she aims to construct an immersive ecological narrative to bring attention to human-caused ecosystem decline.
