Partnering for the Climate: An Artist/Scientist Mixer

Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 3:00pm

Given the frequent headlines about global warming, how can we make sense of this often overwhelming information and make a difference?  

 

Answers may lie in concerted, conscious collaboration between artists and scientists that joins hard science with interpretive media. Civic Action artist Mary Miss and leading scientist Eric Sanderson discuss how interpretive media and collaboration between artists and scientists can help us to better understand and respond to global warming.  Moderated by playwright Jeremy Pickard.

 

Presented in collaboration with PositiveFeedback, an initiative of the Earth Institute at Columbia University; the Center for Creative Research at NYU; and the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities.
