Mary Conroy’s work investigates humans’ connection with nature through socially-engaged practice, including participation & intervention. In this podcast, she talks us through her 3 projects developed during the international residency programme in Levadia, Gdańsk & Govan, engaging with the natural environment in three distinct locations. She also shares how she adapted her contribution in Scotland through a remote but authentic engagement with local community following COVID-19 restrictions.
