Climate Stories—Creative Reflections on Climate Change


The Climate Stories Collaborative invites members of our campus and community to a showcase of creative works produced by students in classes across the university. This exhibition and related events will feature visual and performance pieces expressing climate stories—stories of those who are affected by and/or taking action to address climate change.


Join us and experience student reflections on climate change in a variety of creative media—painting, sculpture, theatrical performance, videography, photography, design, narrative non-fiction, poetry, and more—at the College of Fine and Applied Art's HOW Space venue downtown. HOW Space is dedicated to advancing creative and collaborative student and faculty projects that engage the local community.


This exhibit and event series is hosted by the Climate Stories Collaborative, with support from the College of Fine and Applied Arts; The College of Arts and Sciences; The Reich College of Education; The Honors College; and The Smith Gallery.


With participation from students in: Anthropology; Applied Design; Art; Communication; Cultural, Gender and Global Studies; Curriculum and Instruction; English; Geological and Environmental Sciences; Government and Justice Studies; Management; Mathematical Sciences; Social Work; Sustainable Development; Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment; Theatre & Dance; and University College.
