Third Thursdays

EcoCultureLab has partnered with Burlington’s Generator Makerspace to host gatherings on the third Thursdays of each month. The gatherings range from small working meetings to large public events that engage multiple communities — of artists, scientists, professionals, and citizens — around topics at the convergence of environment, art, and activism. See our Calendar and Blog for announcements of these as they arise.

Speaker Series

EcoCultureLab hosts and co-hosts visits by speakers, artists, and activists working at the confluence of environment and the arts. In the last few years, speakers have included philosopher and anthropologist of science Bruno Latour, eco-activist and author Starhawk, musician and eco-philosopher David Rothenberg, eco-artist/designer Natalie Jeremijenko, environmental writer and critic John Elder, and numerous others. Events have also included film screenings and panel discussions. Videos of some of these are available on the Videos Page.

Burlington Pheno(meno)logical Clock

How do we become better observers of the impacts of global processes (climatic, ecological, political-economic) on the phenological (eco-seasonal) and phenomenological (sensorial-experiential) worlds around us? How do we enhance our collective sensorium to enable us to redirect those processes toward more viable futures?

This project is being developed in collaboration with the Burlington PLACE Project and the ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain. It is inspired by Natalie Jeremijenko's Phenological xClock, with interactive crowdsourcing elements.

Eco-media Mentoring

In 2017-18, EcoCulture Lab partnered with Finn Yarbrough of Earth House Productions to offer creative and technical support to students and faculty who are using audio-visual media to explore socio-ecological relationships. Click for information on some of the projects. While the partnership was successful, we are looking for funds to continue it.
