We Are the Asteroid: Art and the Ecological Crisis, 13 Nov 2019
Climatic changes--Effect of human beings on; Art--Political aspects; Art and society;
As the world searches for ways to continue to work together to address the climate crisis of the Anthropocene, it is evident that deep care lies at the heart of real action and is critical when enacting social change. Art has a powerful ability to communicate this kind of care and urgency through the fog of divisive and dismissive dialogue, so when the question is asked, “Can art help change the world?”, Guarigla argues, the answer is a resounding, “YES”.
