Fri and Sun: 10am-5:30pm, Sat: 9am-3pm
Leaders: Chantal Bilodeau and Julia Levine
Calling all artists, activists, scientists, and educators who want to explore how complexity may be expressed in artistic works that engage with climate change! All disciplines are welcome and individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations and communities are encouraged to attend. We promote an inclusive environment that supports diverse perspectives.
During this 3-day intensive, hosted by Artists & Climate Change’s parent organization The Arctic Cycle – we’ll explore the meaning and possible expressions of complexity through movement, conversation, and creative exercises. We’ll wrestle with questions that have no easy answers, imagine ways to hold conflicting ideas together, and start to make work that is reflective of our modern societies and their messy paradoxes. Guest speakers from the arts and the sciences will provide additional perspectives and help us formulate strategies to deepen our work.
Confirmed guest speakers include Lani Fu, co-director of Superhero Clubhouse; Sonali McDermid, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at New York University; Jeremy Pickard, founder and co-director of Superhero Clubhouse, and; Tahnee Prior, Ph.D. Candidate in Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, University of Waterloo.
All sessions will take place at The Artist Co-op, 500 W 52nd St #3W, New York. Limited to 20 participants. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis. For more information, visit the website.
