A packed room of summit-goers, sitting in discussion groups at RIC. 

On Saturday, March 16, RIEEA held our 2024 Annual Summit: Art for Eco-Literacy and Activism, presented by SouthCoast Wind!

From May Babcock’s wonderful keynote on ecocentric paper-making to discussion groups, raffle drawings, and even a pulp leaf art installation activity, the RIEEA community explored art and ecology the best way we know how: together. Thank you to our hosts at Rhode Island College, our many wonderful sponsors, and especially to all who joined us – hope you had as much fun as we did!

After making biodegradable pulp leaf casts, summit-goers planted them in the RIC pollinator garden.
Participants create pulp-cast leaves under the instruction of keynote speaker May Babcock, using twigs, paper pulp, cloth, and dried leaves.
