See Change - A Socially Engaged Community Art Project
"What the warming world needs now is art, sweet art."
Bill McKibben, Founder of 350.org, 2005
Sanchez Art Center, Pacifica, CA, seeks socially engaged artists to create site-specific community engaged public art reflecting on sea level rise, to support the community to civilly engage in authentic conversations, and work collaboratively to meet the requirements for municipalities to develop adaptation strategies.
Understanding that we need to adapt to the impacts of climate change, we also recognize the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that accelerate climate change and resulting impacts like sea level rise.
From manufacturing to disposal, the more stuff we buy and throw away, the more energy is used. (More than 40% of our climate impact comes from how we make, haul, use and throw away stuff, including food. These are called consumption emissions.) Physical resources used in this project must therefore support a waste reduction approach that incorporates repurposed materials and recycled content.
