Be part of a climate exhibition at CCAM!
Join Guest Artist Daniel Perlin for a design sprint and exhibition as part of CCAM’s inaugural Climate Bauhaus. Taking cues from Kim Stanley Robinson’s speculative fiction novel Ministry of the Future, the workshop will interconnect and explore ideas presented in the book that engage directly with key, critical facets of the climate crisis, including flooding, ice melt, extreme temperatures, and their impact on life on Earth.
After a quick overview, participants will engage in a quick, focused design sprint to collaborate on and create large-scale, ambitious, speculative proposals and prototypes that tackle these issues head-on. The nature of the sprint is to use the time crunch to work with intuition—opening up creative freedom for all participants to think big, speculate, and generate ideas and solutions.
The resulting proposals will be exhibited on 2’x2’ archival artboards, which will be installed the next day and exhibited as part of Climate Bauhaus. Board mediums are open-ended, and we encourage collage, paint, drawing, and any other skills participants bring. Select proposals may be invited to future exhibition, publication, and/or development opportunities.
To participate, please register via Eventbrite by April 22 (end of day). Participants must commit to the full duration of the workshop. Participation is limited to 30 people. There is a waitlist, from which we will work to include additional participants as possible.
Free but register in advance
