Title: Understanding Our Climate Emergency Through Art & Aesthetics
An enlightening event that delves into the profound connections between art, aesthetics, and our understanding of the urgent climate crisis. While scientific data has long highlighted the impending climate crisis, it's often the emotive power of art that stirs society into action. This event offers an exploration into how the broader humanities, especially art, offer unique perspectives outside the typical techno-economic paradigm. Our esteemed speakers, Isabel and Santiago, will share their experiences and insights into bringing together multiple expert viewpoints. The goal is to provide a theoretical and cultural perspective that inspires alternative transformative approaches to convey the urgency of the climate emergency.
