Over the next 5 years, EcoArt will be commissioning new works that offer creative ways of rethinking the current praxis of constant economic growth and the pursuit of ‘more’. EcoArt wishes to creatively explore ways of reconnecting with the more than human world, opening up opportunities for human and planet flourishing based on systems driven by values other than profit.
In 2021, EcoArt developed work with Ted Leeming to creatively respond to the COP21 summit in Glasgow. Ted developed the 'COP Most Wanted' Playing Cards which were displayed at impromptu exhibitions in unlikely places.
