What do museums have to do with climate change, environmental crisis and communication?

Monday, 6 May 2019 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

This week, we investigate how museums use different forms of communication to educate and mobilize the public around the twin existential crises of climate change and global environmental degradation with Miranda Massie, founder of the unique Climate Museum in New York City, and environmental activist Beka Economopoulos, executive director of the US based Natural History Museum. Both guests were in Australia as keynote speakers at the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival.

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
