Creative People Leading Climate Action

Digital Exhibition of Visual and Performance Art on view April 16 - June 30, 2021.

The climate crisis is upon us, but we still have a limited time to make an impact. Use your art to lead the way! Artists added their art, poetry, music, short story, spoken word, performance, or multidisciplinary work to show their response to the crisis, to envision a new world, and to motivate positive action. This exhibition was an invitation, open to all, of work in any medium as defined below.

Artists used their climate inspire art to:   
•    Inspire Action. 
•    Capture beauty. 
•    Document this time of change.
•    Help others imagine a better future.
•    Stand in solidarity with those on the front lines.
•    Mourn our collective losses.
•    Share their unique vision.
•    Showcase their hopes or dreams.
