EARTH RISING, a four day environmental festival, begins today at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin.
Following an open call by the Irish Museum of Modern Art, some 50 artists put together exhibitions and events on the issue of climate action.
“EARTH RISING embodies IMMA’s commitment to fostering creative-thinking, dialogue, and understanding as we collectively address the climate crisis and envision a brighter, more sustainable future,” IMMA Director Annie Fletcher said.
“The museum is dedicated to promoting social progress and cultural innovation through dialogue and understanding.”
All events are free and highlights include a Future Generations Tent, where children can discuss and explore issues such as biodiversity, mental health and change.
There will also be a cooking demonstration by refugees living in Direct Provision.
