At the Heart of Art and Earth. An Exploration of Practices in Arts-Based Environmental Education

Boeckel, Jan van, 2013

PhD

What begins to happen when we seek to connect to the natural world primarily through art, rather than pre-established scientific knowledge? In At the Heart of Art and Earth, Jan van Boeckel explores the kind of learning that takes place through arts-based environmental education. As we approach phenomena indirectly and invite the unforeseen, we grope our way forward and multiple meanings can come forth.
