2017-2018 FES SPEAKER SERIES: Environmental Scholarship, Activisms & the Arts

The aim of this year’s speaker series Environmental Scholarship, Activisms & the Arts at the Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES) was to learn and share new approaches for creatively engaging in environmental arts, art practices and art modes of inquiry. The series highlights work by alumni and faculty considering art as sites of knowledge and in many cases as forms of activism. Some of the speakers engage communities and challenge injustice, others conduct participatory research, develop new insights into complex problems, and/or build art practices that engage with and respond to the complexity of social, political and environmental concerns. Learn about the series.
