Climate justice and related struggles: aesthetic, creative and disruptive strategies
There are a range of responses to the enormity of global climate crises.
They range from denial; to the belief that technology is the answer; some feeling ‘green fatigue’; others, particularly youth and young adults, living in a state of ‘climate anxiety’. There is, however, another group of people; a cadre of feminist artists, activists and educators who refuse to accept, to ignore, to remain silent or to disappear into fear.
This webinar focuses on their aesthetic, creative and disruptive strategies.
At a time when the world is beset by a looming climate crisis, these public educational practices offer inspiration as the imagination of the possible.
Host: Shirley Walters, PIMA President
Moderator: Darlene Clover, feminist, scholar-activist,
professor at University of Victoria. Canada
