Art can inspire, educate, encourage self-reflection, and build community cohesion. Artists are key interpreters of our world, helping to contextualize and clarify emotion (such as climate grief), interpret and illuminate science (such as mycorrhizal networks and sea level rise), and encourage action and engagement (through personal or community story). Artists are key participants in the conversation about nature-based solutions and climate.
We have invited a selection of Canadian artists, whose work straddles the science/art divide, to contribute research creation projects. Each artist was asked to create a piece that engages with nature-based solutions, and to present the work to their community.
