As the effects of the climate crisis become more pervasive, it is imperative that we find solutions. At the 2019 Climate Correction conference, we presented our Engagement and Art Expo to illustrate the visuals that inspire change. We believe that meaningful art can connect us with our senses and that the response can prompt thought, engagement, and action within the community.
The theme for the 2019 Artist Award was “Present Issues, Future Solutions”. We encouraged participants to highlight community or technology-based solutions in their art pieces, real or imagined. Student artists used underlying messages and included environmental, social, and economic concepts that are often overlooked.
