I’m returning to my favourite village in Madagascar to carry out the Wild Postcard Project with SEED Madagascar! I’ll spend two weeks there, running an art competition to produce Sainte-Luce-wildlife-themed postcards for the charity to sell to support their valuable work in the area. There will of course be a special insects/invertebrates category! Contact me if you would like to pre-order a pack of postcards.
This competition is only open to children in Sainte Luce, Madagascar. If you are in Ireland or British Columbia, however, check out the official Wild Postcard Project website for current competitions!
Seeking insect-themed poetry submissions for a Remembrance Day for Lost Species competition, by 17th November. The winner will receive €50, and a selection of poems will be chosen to be read at a poetry and music event at St. Michan's Church, Dublin 7, on 30th November 2017.
Bugonia is an exhibition of visual and sound art by creative entomologist, Nessa Darcy, opening on 4th November 2017 at Bí URBAN, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. Bugonia is an ancient ritual based on the false belief that bees could be spontaneously generated from the carcass of an ox. To the artist, it represents our tangled relationship with nature. Nessa’s aim is to reintroduce humans to their natural habitat through colourful encounters with insects.
