Art for Climate Engagement
Join the Climate Museum and celebrated media artist and National Geographic Explorer Paul Miller, also known as DJ Spooky, for a free workshop this January. We will convene high school students from across New York City to discuss how we can bridge art and science to build the climate conversation. A remarkable climate artist himself, Paul will empower science-oriented students to engage with art, and arts-oriented students to engage with science.
Paul will take students on a tour of the Climate Museum’s first exhibition, In Human Time, which combines film, photography, science, and music composition about ice cores. His subsequent presentation will explore art, science, and the climate conversation. We will then offer students a guided opportunity to create their own climate-focused multimedia material. The program will conclude with a public competition where students can share their ideas and be inspired by those of their peers. Judges will include Paul Miller and Climate Museum Director Miranda Massie.
The workshop will be open only to a limited number of high school juniors and seniors with a demonstrated interest in science, arts, and/or climate change. Preference will be given to seniors. There are no fees for application or attendance.
Applications are now closed.
