Meet the Chickens

Artist: Hannah Ryan

Medium: Photography

Artist Statement: In West Cork, Ireland, I and my family now raise chickens as an eco-conscious alternative to factory-farmed poultry and eggs. These happy and healthy hens are a sustainable way to source food and to use food waste. Chicken waste contributes to the maintenance of the vegetable garden which supports a sustainable backyard food system, with minimal environmental impact


Artist Biography: #Connected2: Climate and Food Systems is created by GOAL’s NextGen Youth members from across Ireland, Ethiopia, Honduras, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Through the pertinent themes of Global Food Systems and Climate Change, participants learned how each relates to global citizenship and development. They created this photo exhibition to share their learnings with you and hope to raise awareness of how climate change is affecting our food systems.
