Virtual Art & Environmental Justice Symposium
May 17, 2021 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
The Mural Arts Institute is hosting a virtual and free week-long symposium looking at the transformative work happening at the intersection of community-based cultural practice and environmental justice. The Arts + Environmental Justice Symposium, virtual for the first time, invites artists, activists, scientists, scholars, and government officials to discuss how creative people and practices are helping meet the challenges of this moment, and how everyone can build on that to make a just transition a reality. These changemakers will be logging in from Tribal, urban, rural, and suburban communities throughout the nation for this virtual symposium May 17-21, 2021. The week-long symposium will be book-ended with two keynote sessions – conversations with thought leaders in environmental justice. Attendees may attend all or a few of the sessions which are scheduled in the afternoons of May 17-21. Registration is required, but free.
