Three Ecologies Research Group, 2016-2018

An experimental research project developed through collaboration between the Public Programmes and Research team at Nottingham Contemporary and members of the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Critical Theory. The project grew out of a series of ‘summer school’ events, which I was involved in organising and facilitating. The Three Ecologies Research Group brought together artists, academics, curators, a GPS enthusiast and other interested parties in order to develop collective methods for interrogating locally situated issues of a political-ecological nature. A reflection on the project, in the form of an artists’ manual, was published by Nottingham Contemporary in October 2018. The Slow Reading Group, one offshoot of the project, continues to happen monthly.
