Experience the Power of Art to Inspire Climate Action
In February of 2021, Climate Action Network Canada (CAN-Rac), Ecology Action Centre (EAC) and the Conservation Council of New Brunswick (CCNB) collaborated with the FUTURES/forward community-engaged art mentorship program to bring environmentalists and artists together in an inspiring process of collective creation.
Watch this online discussion between project partners and participating artists to experience our emotional journey that emerged.
This one-hour webinar featured four 10-minute conversations between project partners and artist participants, as well as an overview of the program. FUTURES/forward’s Judith Marcuse and Laura Barron spoke about how the program works. Louise Comeau (CCNB), Danielle Smith (From Harm to Harmony participant), Teika Newton (CAN-Rac), Tanya Kalmanovitch (FUTURES/forward artist-in-residence at CAN-Rac), Joanna Bull (EAC), Yasmine Hassen (FUTURES/forward artist-in-residence at EAC) shared stories and revelations about the benefits of bringing community-engaged art making to our environmental work.
