Official event of Climate Week NYC!
On September 28, 2019, the Roundtable will host A Day of Learning on the Art of Environmental Justice at the New York Botanical Garden in conjunction with Climate Week NYC 2019. This Day of Learning will be dedicated to exploring ways in which our membership and our larger community of arts in education colleagues are employing artistic practice as a means to inspire community, education, and active awareness of environmental justice issues.
Featuring breakout sessions from Superhero Clubhouse, Artichoke Dance Company, Children’s Museum of Art, and more!
The event will culminate in a presentation of NYBG’s Climate Change Arts Exchange, a multidisciplinary performance of NYC-based performing arts groups presenting new works related to climate change. The Day of Learning will also take place on the closing weekend of NYBG’s exhibition, “BRAZILIAN MODERN: THE LIVING ART OF ROBERTO BURLE MARX.”
