CONNECTING COMMUNITY, ARTS & SCIENCE

RHIZOME  

Rhizome is a Green Arts programme that aims to highlight the critical role of creativity, optimism, and imagination in the craft of social and environmental change. Initiated by Project Arts Centre in 2021, the project is led by Artivist in Residence Maeve Stone and Artist in the Community Louis Haugh, in partnership with Fatima Groups United, NCAD Field & Trinity College Dublin. At its core, it seeks to connect local communities from different backgrounds and disciplines, in creative conversation about the future of our planet.  

 

FUTURE FOOD  

As part of the Rhizome project, commissioned artist Louis Haugh, worked in collaboration with the Fatima Groups United community to look at the future of food cultivation, consumption, and global supply chains in light of climate breakdown. Together, they created a space to share ideas, histories and personal relationships connected to food and nourishment. Through a series of intergenerational and intercultural exchanges, their intrinsic human relationship to bread and bread making became core of this work.
