Both online and in-person: Climate change is real. This presentation, “The Fine Arts: Evoking a Response to Climate Change” is an interplay of scientific and artistic visuals curated and presented by Ben Brabson, climate scientist and Emeritus Professor of Physics at Indiana University.
Studies show that using art for communication can raise awareness, provoke impactful dialogue, and inspire action about environmental issues. Brabson’s talk includes engaging and artful illustrations that simplify concepts of climate change for ordinary people, making the concepts more concrete, meaningful, and motivating.
The intersection of the arts and climate change is a vital and dynamic space where creativity, expression, and activism come together. Artists play a crucial role in addressing climate change by harnessing their unique abilities to engage emotions, challenge perspectives, and ignite social change. This presentation incorporates several pieces by Artists for Climate Awareness.
The presentation is free and is offered both in-person and online. Those who register to attend virtually will receive a Zoom link.
Artists for Climate Awareness is pleased to offer this workshop as part of its series to help artists learn how to use art as a way to bring social awareness to conservation efforts in your communities.
