Climate Art & Action: Artists as Agents of Change
Contemporary artists are playing an important role in responding to the climate crisis, contributing to the cultural shift necessary for generating positive action by expanding the field of climate change communication and transforming scientific concepts into individual and collective representations. In this pivotal moment of climate change, they cultivate new narratives by giving tangible form to the invisible, demonstrating how art can help awaken resolve and shape our next steps. This lecture will focus on artists who have sought to be agents of change through working collaboratively across disciplines and within communities. In the process of using dialogue to make a transformative impact on the environment, they also expand our understanding of what it means to be an artist.
