Tanda: Facing Climate Change and Mass Migration Through Visual Art, Elizabeth Calvillo Dueñas

It’s an undeniable fact that our world’s climate will change. Yet, there’s little understanding or preparation as to how climate change will shape the demographics of our world. In the Pacific Northwest, summer of 2020 saw not only the pandemic, but also endless days of smoke-filled air, ash on cars and unnatural orange sunsets. These past few years, I’ve realized that this process is already beginning, but is going unnoticed.

I’m interested in researching this topic further to gain a better understanding of how climate change will shape our daily lives in the US. How will politics and our economy change? What will happen when cities cease to exist in the coming years? And in all of this, what role is art playing in this global process? Can it do anything? Should it?

Join us in this Tanda session to share conversations, resources, and knowledge.
