Resiliencies: stories of transformation from within a small South Carlow forest
Cathy Fitzgerald is an artist currently completing her PhD on eco art practice at NCAD. She will share a developing audiovisual film book in a short walk around Hollywood – the smallest Close-to-Nature continuous cover forest in Ireland. Hollywood is tiny! It is a 2 acre, 35 year old conifer plantation being transformed into a permanent forest using a new-to-Ireland forestry approach. This artful eco project has many insights, and not only for forestry. Learn how ‘the little wood that could’ has contributed to short films, national forest policy, forest science and an awareness about ecocide, whilst becoming an increasingly resilient home for all those who live within it.
