Artists in all art forms facilitate important cultural work within communities, especially those affected by climate change or environmental issues that intersect with identity and economics. Often artists are uniquely qualified to see unexpected solutions to problems and to create perspectives to help people understand challenging ideas. This panel discussion brings together Minnesota artists working in several media, including Ananya Chatterjea, Shanai Matteson, and others, to discuss their experiences and artistic perspectives of environmental justice on a regional and global scale.
This talk presented as part of the 2019-2020 Spotlight Series: Environmental Justice in collaboration with the University Honors Program and Northrop Presents. It is cosponsored by the Race, Indigeneity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Initiative; the Department of Geography, Environment, and Society; and the Institute for Global Studies.
