Climate Museum: Envisioning a Climate Safe Future

Participatory Workshops at 1pm & 3pm
Studio A4, Upper Level


The Climate Museum presents a workshop inspired by LMCC artist Muna Malik's Blessing of the Boats in which participants will be invited to share stories that explore a future, climate-safe world and project themselves into that future. How can we use the arts as a pathway to turn an emotional response into action? Into community building? 

The Climate Museum will also introduce a newly-launched participatory art initiative with collaborator Mona Chalabi, the Beyond Lies campaign, which explores the fossil fuel industry's wrongdoing and invites the public to take an active role in moving beyond business as usual and towards a future focused on climate progress. These explorations and stories will then be woven together into a collaborative group vision for a climate-safe future.

The Climate Museum

The Climate Museum’s mission is to inspire action on the climate crisis with programming across the arts and sciences that deepens understanding, builds connections, and advances just solutions. In its public programming to date, it has created an activist cultural approach to community engagement with climate, recognizing that most Americans are worried about the climate crisis but are unsure how to take meaningful action. The Museum’s free, accessible exhibitions, art installations, events, youth programs, and more have broadened the climate movement with an emphasis on community, justice, equity, and inclusion. Programs are presented at the museum’s exhibition hub on Governors Island, in parks, galleries, in venues citywide, and in 2020-2021 through virtual events. The Museum is currently scaling out to a permanent, year-round presence in New York City.
