    The inaugural Artists & Climate Change Incubator, organized by The Arctic Cycle and hosted by The Lark, is open to artists and arts educators who want to engage or further their engagement with climate change through artistic practices. All disciplines are welcome, and individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations and communities are encouraged to attend. The Incubator is an inclusive environment that supports diverse perspectives. During this 5-day intensive, you will interact with guest speakers from fields such as environmental humanities, climate change communication, visual and performing arts, social justice, and environmental activism. Work sessions will provide tools to Reflect, Conceive, Innovate, Collaborate and Activate.

    Conversations with fellow artists will allow us to dig deep into challenges and concerns such as embracing activism without sacrificing personal vision and artistic integrity, letting go of the idea of “product,” and bringing the arts to non-traditional audiences. Together, we will explore: • Strategies to engage artistically with climate change • What the world may look like seen through a different lens • Ways to take the art out of traditional venues • How to develop collaborative projects with non-arts partners • How to activate audiences and create greater engagement with climate change issues All sessions will take place in the studio of The Lark at 311 West 43rd Street, New York, NY. Limited to 20 participants. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis.
