Listen – Climate change from an emotional perspective.
Project rooms, Färgfabriken
Färgfabriken, Virserum Konsthall, and Skellefteå Konsthall are launching a partnership that looks at how we perceive and communicate climate change from an emotional perspective. The project will be encapsulated in three interconnected yet location-specific exhibitions at the three arts centres.
The transition to a climate-neutral future requires not only structural intervention but also an increasingly cohesive understanding of our climate where the way we feel is related to scientific facts. This will allow us to process our grief for what we’ve lost and channel our feelings of hope into action. We’re therefore creating a forum where young people, researchers, and artists can explore and relay their experiences and feelings in relation to climate and places. This involves testing our ability to listen to and trust ourselves.
Each location will bring together a group of young people, artists, and researchers, followed by an exhibition and public programme at each arts centre.
