Climate Crisis & Visual Culture

Alastair Herron is a UN Climate Change teacher as part of a world programme establishing Climate Change champions throughout educational establishments globally. Alastair has qualifications, B.A., M.Ed., M.Phil., PhD, but says Climate Crisis qualifies everybody on our planet to become creatively involved. This lecture contributes to such involvement, exploring Art, Identity and Culture.

Extreme weather events will effect transportation, consumerism, food, livelihood, habitat, etc. It’s today’s foremost issue drastically impacting future generations. Understanding relationships between Art and Climate Catastrophe help towards necessary action. Viewing environmental upheaval, as well  informed artists, through our creativity likewise appears vital.
