‘The Regenerative Turn’

TSG are delighted to invite you to our new Arts & Cultural programme,

‘The Regenerative Turn’ a year long program of nourishing and energising community and cultural events curated by Martina Finn, in The Granary, 58, Dominic St, Galway, our new city centre Eco Arts, Regenerative & Perma – Cultural Hub.

Our Spring Schedule, entails weekly meet-ups exploring… the role of arts and culture in transitioning to a more regenerative future, exploring thematics of Bioregionalism, One Planet Living, Regenerative & Permaculture Practices for Healing Ourselves & Healing Our Planet….

Offering a chance to connect with others, during these challenging times in creative and nourishing ways: through culture, conversation, art, food, film and friendship.

‘A Regenerative Culture is one that serves humanity and is a mindful steward of Earth’s ecosystems. The transition to a Regenerative Culture  is about seeing the world in a different way — a shift to an ecological world view in which NATURE is the model.’ Christian Daniel Wahl

A ‘regenerative’ approach goes beyond sustainability to explore how we can organise in ways that actually renew or revitalize our own resources and those of our groups – this can help us stay inspired, nourished, & more creative in our tactical approach.’  The Ulex Project

Each month we aim to invite people to co- create with us a flexible radical educational and open schedule for our communities to address together their regenerative & permaCulture queries, concerns and the sustainability issues of our times, brought by participants themselves!…

Feel free to contact us in advance if you would like to present on a topic or wish to address a specific topic or project on the night.

Exploring the foundational permaculture ethics and principles of – People Care, Planet Care, Fair & Future Care – These Regenerative Community Radical ReEducation sessions will be facilitated by Permaculture Practitioners and guests including ‘Permaculture in the City’ Project Co-Founders and TSG members Martina Finn and Roisin Ni Fhaolain

– with guest participation on March 2nd by Tadgh Hanrahan. 

Tadgh completed his PDC with Geoff Lawton at the Permaculture Project camp in Jordan. Having met many inspiring people from different countries embarking on a Permaculture path, Tadgh offers to give a brief intro on his view on the growing possibilities of Regenerative AgriCulture. 

As part of the introductory night, he will also discuss the remarkable role of Ecofeminist and Earth Justice Activist Dr. Vandana Shiva in promoting Earth Democracy, Seed Sovereignty and Regenerative AgriCulture including a short intro to her most recent book.. Oneness vs 1%: Shattering Illusions, Seeding Freedom 

“World-renowned eco-feminist and “rock star of the environmental movement”, Vandana Shiva, presents her latest book “Oneness vs. The 1%”, equal parts a sobering warning on the dangers to human rights and biodiversity of the elite-led extractive economy of our time, and a profound reflection on why this is a unique moment to collectively correct the false construction of capital as the sole force of wealth (and well-being). Her presentation opened the second day of UNRISD conference, “Overcoming Inequalities in a Fractured World: Between Elite Power and Social Mobilization”.

UNRISD International Conference is a forum for analysis and dialogue that brought together academics, UN representatives, policy makers and civil society. Learn more: http://www.unrisd.org/conference2018

We will also be hosting EcoDocumentary Nights – On the Second Monday of Every Month –

Join us on Monday March 9th, 8.15pm

for a community screening of the movie Inhabit Permaculture

Please join us for this, our new monthly series of provocative eco documentaries and discussions – highlighting the complex and multifaceted social and cultural dimensions to the urgency of the twin challenges facing us of Ecological Collapse and Climate Change.

Permaculture has been recognised by the UN FAO as providing key regenerative solutions in tackling climate change and food security.

“INHABIT explores the many environmental and agricultural issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using a nature based ecological design process called ‘Permaculture’. Permaculture is a design lens that uses the principles found in ecosystems to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.”

TSG movie nights are designed to inspire, challenge, inform and illuminate and will be introduced by TSG members Cait Fahy and Jessica Pape with TSG curator, Martina Finn and special guest contributors!! 

This monthly documentary series presents a panorama of interconnections from the causes to solutions.. and the transformational role of individuals, communities and societies in addressing the issues and adapting for a more regenerative and resilient future

‘I am convinced that creativity is a priori to the integrity of the universe and that life is regenerative and conformity meaningless’ R. Buckminster Fuller
