Looking the Dragon of Climate Change in the Eye: Art and Social Revolution
Lecture by Mike Healey and Jim Beattie of First Things First Okanagan
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 (FTFO) has organized a series of art events on the theme of climate change. Our 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 city councils.
