Calling all artists, activists, scientists, and educators who want to engage or further their engagement with climate change through artistic practices! After a two year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, join the Arts & Climate Initiative for the Artists & Climate Change Incubator, June 27-July 1, 2022 in Anchorage, Alaska. We can’t wait to gather in person and connect around our shared desire to harness the power of the arts to address the climate crisis. All disciplines are welcome and individuals from traditionally underrepresented communities are encouraged to attend. The Incubator is an inclusive environment that supports diverse perspectives.
During this 5-day intensive, participants interact with accomplished guest speakers from fields such as environmental humanities, psychology, climate activism, and visual and performing arts. Through discussions and creative exercises, we exchange tips and best practices, as well as explore how to remain courageous in the face of inevitable losses; increase our collective resilience; and find joy in the work ahead. Together we will develop tools that can help us heal ourselves, our communities, and the planet.
Limited to 20 participants. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation, and are required to be fully vaccinated. A few scholarships and half-scholarships are available.
All sessions take place at the SEED Lab, 111 W 6th Ave, Anchorage, AK 99501 (a 2-min walk from the Anchorage Museum).
The Incubator is taking place within Dena’ina Ełnena. We acknowledge and pay our respect to the Dena’ina Athabascan people and thank them for stewarding these lands and waters through the generations. We recognize that we are visitors and are grateful for the opportunity to discover and learn about this territory and culture.
