Carolyn Cardinet is an accidental ARTivist (accidental artist) whom over the years has witnessed coastal degradation.
Her thirst for challenges has taken the form of many artist residencies (AiR) around the globe to discover, engage
and act upon society's' un-utilised residues, the very wastage linked to our hyper-consumerism & lifestyle.
'With my environmental art practice it is crucial for me to transform the very materials I find.
How to transform our daily sins (read:plastic material) into sculptural monochrome artworks that can speak for themselves.
Artworks that touches, inspires and ultimately
instil a desire to engage and be part of the environmental big picture for this planet and its future.
Carolyn develops & delivers ART & SUSTAINABILITY workshops in schools.
In June 2019, Carolyn pursued her passion regarding Climate Change in attending the Brisbane ‘Climate Reality Leadership’ program and trained with Al Gore. The 3 days event allowed for an expanded breath of knowledge to engage and facilitate discussions with local communities to create greater awareness regarding the age of the Anthropocene affecting our environment.
In June 2021, Carolyn continued her training as a Sustainability Leader with the Port Phillip council
and in October 2022 with the Yarra City Council Sustainability program.
