Third Coast Disrupted Retreat
Never before, to our knowledge, has a group of local artists and scientists come together for a sustained, interdisciplinary conversation centered on climate change impacts and actions occurring here in the Chicago area. Until Third Coast Disrupted: Artists + Scientists on Climate.
This September, 14 artists and scientists will meet and start talking at a daylong retreat in Indiana Dunes National Park. Through the following year, they’ll continue the conversation, while the artists create new artworks – inspired by the dialogue – for an exhibition at the Glass Curtain Gallery of Columbia College Chicago.
Third Coast Disrupted aims to be an engaging way to spur public awareness of climate change impacts in the Chicago area. It will instill hope and be a gateway to citizen action. And by building community between the artists and scientists, it has the potential to seed spinoff partnerships and projects.
With some of the artists seeking to involve members of the general public in their art creation, the project’s reach extends directly into Chicago communities.
And it all begins with the kickoff retreat – with your help.
Meet the scientists and artists.
