Greenhouse was a 2-day paid intensive for a cohort of 100 local artists across disciplines who brought together a diversity of climate experiences. Held outside in small groups at UBC Botanical Gardens, Greenhouse was a place to tend to the growth of ideas and understanding:
What is the art-shaped hole in the climate problem?
What is the work of ‘Reauthoring the World?’
What is the artists’ role in transforming a Culture of Consumerism to a Culture of Stewardship?
After participating in Greenhouse, the cohort of 100 artists had paid opportunities with the Artist Brigade, which brings arts and artists to the heart of the climate crisis. These artists were invited to come on field trips to places where they could experience the climate emergency first hand. They then pitched ideas for artistic projects, some of which were commissioned and produced.
