Are you struggling to create real impact in the communities you serve? In this free 3-day virtual workshop we will investigate how you can use collaborative art to rocket yourself and your communities out of apathy and into Action! Together we will explore the transformative power of collaborative art and its capacity to create change, both in us as individuals and in the communities we belong to.
This workshop is designed for organizations and local governments, artists, scientists, and change makers looking for a creative way to engage your communities in taking real action. You do not need to be an artist yourself.

Climate Action through Art is led by Artist, Speaker, and Expert in Community Engagement, Carrie Ziegler, of Earth Art.
"I facilitate powerful collaborative art projects that catalyze real environmental and social change.
Recently, one of my collaborative art in action projects contributed to the passing of a climate mitigation plan in my county AND a resolution stating we are in a Climate Emergency. I have worked with so many organizations and people who are struggling with apathy and lack of hope in light of all of the environmental injustices in the world. When they create art around these issues, collaboratively with other people, they are rocketed out of apathy and into action.
This led me to truly understand the transformative power of art, and the power of creating something together that is much bigger than any one of us can do on our own. I am excited to help YOU create the change you envision in this world."
