Climate Stories Collaborative Student Showcase

Climate Stories—Creative Reflections on Climate Change 

On Thursday, December 7, 2017 The Climate Stories Collaborative hosted a showcase of creative works produced by students enrolled in classes across the College of Fine and Applied Arts. This event featured visual and performance pieces expressing climate stories—stories of those who are already affected by and/or taking action to address climate change. A few hundred students, faculty, staff and community members joined us at the college's HOW Space venue downtown to experience these climate stories, which were crafted in a variety of creative media—painting, sculpture, theatrical performance, videography, photography, design, narrative non-fiction and more. We invite you to view photos of showcase works and the event.

Thanks to the College of Fine and Applied Arts for funding and other support as well as to the more than one hundred faculty and students who contributed to the showcase (see program for participants list).
