Calling all artists, activists, scientists, and educators who want to engage or further their engagement with the ecology through artistic practices! Join The Arctic Cycle for the Arts & Ecology Incubator, November 21-24, 2019 at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. All disciplines are welcome and individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations and communities are encouraged to attend. The Incubator is an inclusive environment that supports diverse perspectives.

During this 3-day intensive, participants interact with accomplished guest speakers from the hard and social sciences, and with local artists who have in-depth knowledge of the Florida ecology. Conversations and work sessions allow everyone to dig deep into the challenges and concerns of working at the intersection of arts and a rapidly changing ecology, such as creating narratives that acknowledge inevitable losses but leave room for the possibility of a thriving and inclusive future.

All sessions take place at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota, FL 34243. Limited to 20 participants. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis.

Full museum admission, from November 22-24, is included with the Incubator. Parking is free. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation. Discount hotel rates available for out of town participants. For more information, visit the Ringling Museum website.

Artists and Climate Change is a blog that tracks artistic responses from all disciplines to the problem of climate change. It is both a study about what is being done, and a resource for anyone interested in the subject. Art has the power to reframe the conversation about our environmental crisis so it is inclusive, constructive, and conducive to action. Art can, and should, shape our values and behavior so we are better equipped to face the formidable challenge in front of us.
