Climate change is no longer a mere possibility—it’s already happening. Glaciers are melting, animal and plant populations are failing, and agricultural practices no longer prevent famine. Around the world, scientists, artists, and activists are addressing climate change in media from nonfiction books to documentary films to live theater. This series brings together writers, journalists, and artists in robust discussion on how they address climate change—and why their work is important in the Anthropocene Era.
What role do novelists and artists play in helping others to better imagine the effects of climate change? Is it even possible for them to do this effectively? And what happens to our definition of art once it enters the realm of politics and activism? These questions and others related to art and climate change will be asked and expanded upon in this exciting panel that brings novelists and a visual artist into conversation about their respective work and visions for the future.Buy tickets/get more info now
