The Climate Stories Collaborative is a transdisciplinary learning community aimed at growing the capacity of faculty and students to use a variety of creative media to tell compelling climate stories, including the stories of those who are affected by, and/or taking action to address, climate change. The project began in the spring of 2017 in the College of Fine & Applied Arts, but is now university-wide in scope. Collaborative co-facilitators include Laura England (Sustainable Development), Derek Davidson (Theatre & Dance), and Jennie Carlisle (Art). For academic year 2020-2021, we are collaborating with the Common Reading Program and the First Year Seminar Program as they read Elizabeth Rush's book Rising. Learn more here.
Spring 2021: We're excited to co-host a virtual conversation with climate leader Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson--more here!
Signs, Wonders, Blunders
The Climate Stories Collaborative is pleased to present Signs, Wonders, Blunders, a temporary public art installation commissioned from art collective Dear Climate that takes the form of a campus-wide trail marker system exploring the complexities of cross disciplinary conversations centering around climate change.
