About this Event

About the Funshop*

Tired of political and social inaction around climate disruption, Micro Galleries created a new movement: a global day of creative action during the UN Youth and Climate Action Summit, 2019. Climate disruption art makes the biggest threat to our existence a cultural reality, and provides a way for us to engage in the subject, educate, provoke and inspire meaningful change, and imagine better futures, together as a community.

This workshops takes the concept and does what Micro Galleries does best, makes it micro. Participants will get a rapid upgrade in climate art, why it’s important, why it should be public, making it accessible to climate vulnerable communities - and then draft their own public climate art concept.
