CoDesRes:

CoDesigning for Resilience in rural development through P2P networks and STEAM place-based learning interventions.

 

CoDesRes is one of six national EPA-funded United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Projects. 

 

CoDesRes brings together an interdisciplinary team of artists, scholars, engineers and marine biologists to co-design and co-develop a multi-stakeholder approach for a ‘beyond-compliance’ engagement with the Sustainable Development Goals 4, Education; 11, Sustainable Cities And Communities; 14. Life Below Water and 15, Life On Land.

 

Over two years, the team, in a co-research process with communities on the Iveragh Peninsula, will trial and iterate a unique methodology, the pCr praxis. The pCr praxis  uses innovative systemic methods and long-standing knowledge networks to engage with circular economies, self-organisation and a re-imagining of local possibilities.

 

The methodology originally developed in London, UK; Dublin, Ireland and Taos County, New Mexico builds on twenty-five years of public  arts practice within a range of contexts; live art, community, schools, prisons and theatre with a range of constituents; elders, youth and local residents.
