One thought on “Open dialogues

  1. fantastic to find this website. Having just completed an MA in Arts and Ecology and writing my dissertation on the role of Crafts in the transition we are currently finding ourselves in (keybook, Richard Sennett,The Craftsman) It is a relief to find others with similar thoughts. I am the founder of the Totnes Transition Town group called Sustainable Makers which is a group of Artists and Makers looking at the social, cultural and economic role of the Maker in a time of energy descent. Currently working on reskilling and skills exchange projects.
    Spending a lot of time with activists and academics working in the field of climate change, it has never been more clear to me the importants of Artists and Craftspeople working in this field, either directly or indirectly.
    The hand and brain connection, working with the land, touch, connection with natural materials, the slow process of making, all can inspire a respect and love of the natural environment we find ourselves in, and therefore a respect for the objects we choose to have in our environment…So much to say, thanks again
