Looking at the Dragon of Climate Change in the Eye: Art and Social Revolution

Lecture by Mike Healey and Jim Beattie

Through the ages, art has inspired, changed, and chronicled great social upheaval. We are now entering another period of great social and economic upheaval driven by climate change. Once again, art is at the forefront of provoking action and change. Over the past six months, First Things First Okanagan has organized a series of art events on the theme of climate change. This talk will briefly address these events and the importance of art in promoting social change.

FTFO is a Penticton-based society dedicated to raising awareness of and action to address climate change. They have organized major events locally and approached various city councils.
