The study aimed at producing two textile installation projects inspired by the philosophical concepts and design characteristics of the cubism art movement to educate the Ghanaian populace on biodiversity conservation. This was in response to the call for multiple perspectives on the high biodiversity depletion in the country. The qualitative studio-based approach with Aesthetico-Action Research guided the production of the projects. Views from 26 study participants at the final exhibition of the projects were analyzed qualitatively to vouch for the suitability of the textile installation projects for biodiversity conservation education. The findings revealed that the textile installations instill intrinsic and aesthetic val-ues that are ecocentric in viewers. These values motivate them to cultivate moral considerations for protecting biodiversity. The study concludes that the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources in Ghana must liaise with textile installations artists in Ghana to produce biodiversity conservation projects to be used for educating the general public on the need to cherish and protect the biodiversity in Ghana.
