The Art and Ecology program from Burren College of Art is an interdisciplinary, research-based programme designed for students who wish to develop an ecologically focused artistic practice. 


Key Features

Graduate students of the Art and Ecology program from Burren College of Art develop key skills in producing work in studio and field-based contexts, investigate how social and earth ecologies coexist within the unique context of the Burren, and have the opportunity to participate in collaborative or community based initiatives. 

Students work with BCA’s core faculty team alongside environmental scientists and local community based organisations to develop critical enquiry through arts practice. Graduates produce a final exhibition of work engaging the dynamic between ecology and arts practice and demonstrating an embodiment of the social, cultural and theoretical concerns shaping the relationship between contemporary art and ecological thinking.
