Any response to climate change needs to be founded on science, but there is a growing awareness that the arts community is uniquely placed to develop conversations around climate change and to generate positive creative action. Twenty artists from across the country are already engaging with the Eco Showboat in 2023 to collaborate on climate action, with the help of Creative Ireland and the Arts Council.

The Eco Showboat is an art project aimed at raising awareness of climate change. The artists are navigating Ireland’s inland waterways meeting local artists, scientists and communities to spark climate action. In 2022 they travelled up the Shannon and Erne systems from Limerick to Enniskillen using only solar power. They plan to fit out a heritage barge as a zero carbon arts platform to navigate the Grand and Royal Canals in 2023. Supported by the Arts Council, SFI Discover, Creative Ireland, Lawpro and Waterways Ireland.

There is a growing awareness that the arts community is uniquely placed to develop conversations around climate change and to generate positive creative action. Sixteen artists from across the country are already engaging with the Eco Showboat to collaborate on climate action, with the help of Creative Ireland and the Arts Council.
