Little Woodland Heights – Lecture and Workshop Series October ’15


Developed in association with the Arts Council of Ireland, The Ark A Cultural Centre for Children, the California Academy of Sciences and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), Little Woodland Heights is an interactive work for children exploring the world of forest canopy ecology and the function of music as translative epistemology.

The piece is an immersive educational environment that explores elements of ecology, botany, phyllotaxis and anthropology, employing sonic and visual information as translative epistemological devices for mapping scientific data into embodied languages intuitively accessible for primary-age students.

Taking place in Cork, Galway and Dublin during the month of October, composer Nick Roth will give a series of lectures and introductory workshops exploring the ideas in the piece, explaining the background research to the project from a scientific and artistic context and outlining its application to education and social arts practise in the wider field. All lectures / workshops are free to attend without prior booking, with the exception of the Ark workshop, which is free but ticketed (booking at
