Moon Base Projects
Creating Connections online Exhibition
The Green Room – February 2021!
All of these illustrations were created as part of our ‘Moon Base Biodiversity Project’ towards the end of 2020. This was funded by The British Science Association and facilitated by artist Kerrie Hanna.
We created a Biodiversity Map which included many of these illustrations. We gathered photographs and ideas while out on Nature Walks with Jim Bradley from The Belfast Hills Partnership.
The walks were at the Mary Peters Track, Newtownabbey and Victoria Park.
The Artists are all group members from ‘Creating Connections’ which meets weekly on Zoom.

Artist Kerrie Hanna took us through some steps for creating illustrations – including shape, flare and detail!
Creating the Moon Base Biodiversity Map has been a lot of fun and the group have produced some brilliant drawings! You can buy an A3 limited edition copy of the biodiversity map which comes with a set of six beautiful postcards highlighting some of the amazing plants, animals and insects we found!
