Artist in Residency Program
The Living Wall Artist in Residency program is formatted to use art as a tool to combine vertical gardening with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, which will allow students to be inspired to think differently about sustainable development. After completing the workshop, students will have gained an understanding in biology and its uses within architecture and engineering, skills in design thinking, basic fabrication methods of a physical living wall, and an understanding on-going plant-care.
Inspire youth about the use of plants within Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.
DESIGN & MAKE
MAINTAIN & CARE
Provide youth with collaborative skills, and use methods of design thinking to develop their own living wall for the school.
Througgh dedicated teams, on-going plant care will occur during the duration of the living wall installation.
Founded in 2013 by a Pediatrician and a Landscape Architect, Project Sustainability, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was created with primary goal to connect youth to nature and inspire them to be change-agents in sustainable development. Since its founding, Project Sustainability has been active with research and developing an effective Artist in Residency program that combines nature with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematic fields through passive and interactive methods.
Most recently, the founders of Project Sustainability, Michael McCullough and Dr. Mollika Sajady have focused on academic publications and spreading the important message that the human to nature relationship is critical to mental health, city development, and our planet.
