I am an artist (based in Northern Ireland) and a long-time researcher on the visual arts in Ireland. I have just started a part-time Ph.D at the University of Ulster
on how the visual arts sector in Northern Ireland and the Republic is dealing with the issues created by climate change. My aim is to discover and highlight best practice and to identify areas of poor practice/omission.
Contact from those with practice or interest in this area would be very welcome, as would comment on the proposed methodology/approaches to be used in the research.
An outline of the research and its methodology/approaches can be found at www.bloftus.co.uk. I can be contacted at Loftus-B1@email.ulster.ac.uk or on 07736 487505.
