ABOUT EARTH ART BAINBRIDGE
Earth Art Bainbridge is a program that brought together artists and our community to create a time and space where we can express our thoughts and feelings about climate change through visual art, music, poetry, performance, experience and discussion. It was held during the month of April, 2016 to coincide with our celebration of Earth Day.
Art reflects where we are as a culture, and it gives us a way to understand and engage with difficult topics. Most of us have engaged with the topic of climate change primarily through facts and figures, by reading articles and hearing news about the science of climate change. It’s a huge topic that’s difficult to grasp intellectually.
By approaching the topic through art, we offered our community a new way to engage with climate change, and initiated discussions about how we can envision a future living with climate change.
Climate change is the greatest challenge we have ever faced. Our art and conversation can help guide us through this challenge.
Art workshops were offered during and/or prior to April, 2016 to invite the public to create art works in groups, inspired by specific climate change issues.
Displays and performances
All April (2016), art works were on display and performed at various venues throughout Bainbridge Island.
Guest presenters and discussion
We had ample opportunities to discuss our response to the art works with community members.
