Creating a Climate for Change in Limerick

DANCE Limerick have announced its newest project called Creating a Climate for Change in Limerick, running until the end of 2024.

The project aims to promote change, just sustainability transitions, and climate literacy through easy-access creative media in the form of audio, visual and movement stories.

Dance Limerick artist Katy Hewison and a team consisting of researchers Ciara Moynihan and Gülfem Cevheribucak, dance artist Roberta Ceginskaite, choreographer and multidisciplinary artist Vanessa Grasse, visual artist Mike O’Brien, and communications coordinator Emer Casey are working in partnership with local communities to break down barriers to accessing climate change literature by transforming it into the formats of hearing, seeing and moving. 

These groups include: Moyross Sport and Physical Activity Hub, Moyross Community Hub, Watch House Cross Library, Limerick City Library, and Croom Family Resource Centre. The project culminates in sharing events at Dance Limerick and Limerick City Gallery of Art in November 2024.

As part of the research, the public is invited to join the project team for free, informal Information Sessions and Taster Community Workshops in late March and early April where you can listen to key researchers, move with the artists, and get an insight into the research so far and the learning yet to come.
