Karina Buckley (IE) studied ballet and biochemistry before moving into broadcasting in 2000. She completed a certificate in Dance Studies at Inchicore College of Further Education, Dublin and her dance teacher training is ongoing. She’s currently exploring the interplay between cameras and choreography in the realm of screendance and is excited by the possibilities technology offers to dancers and dance-makers. Karina is co-founder of Climate Without Borders, a global network of weather communicators working to raise climate awareness and promote climate action with fact-based storytelling. Where facts fail to convince, stories are key and Karina firmly believes that dance – and other artistic endeavours – can be effective agents of social inclusion and change. She has previously written about dance for Ireland’s national public service media organisation and for the Irish edition of The Sunday Times.
