Event Details

Inspired by three recent books about environmentalism and hope, a panel of artists and activists will discuss how art can help us imagine climate change and drive action.

* * *

If we’re going to stop climate change, we can’t fall into despair. We need art and literature to inspire hope—and radical action.

One day after the midterm elections, join us at Greedy Reads for a panel discussion about climate change, resilience, and art. Five local artists and activists will discuss their work opening the public’s imagination to the real possibilities of climate apocalypse, as well as the real pathways to an alternate future:

  • Michel Anderson, of Blue Water Baltimore
  • Phaan Howng, artist
  • Naadiya Hutchinson, artist
  • Valeska Populoh, artist
  • Kate Reed Petty, novelist (moderator)

We’ll be drawing inspiration from three books: Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit; Rising by Elizabeth Rush; and The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert. Audience members are welcome (but not required) to read the books ahead of time — they’re 10% off at Greedy Reads leading up to the event, and 15% off at the event.

Wine and snacks will be served. Free and open to all, please RSVP here.

 

This event is supported by The Rubys Artist Project Grants. The Rubys Artist Project Grants were conceived and initiated with start-up funding from the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation and are a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
