Partnering for the Climate: An Artist/Scientist Mixer

Sunday, February 12, 2012   3:00 pm  The Noguchi Museum

How can individuals and communities make sense of fragmented, confusing and often overwhelming news and data about climate change? The nervous system that interweaves artists, researchers, and the concerned public is largely disconnected. How can we make a difference and spark new relationships in the process? 

Now more than ever, the climate needs artists and scientists to partner up and marry hard science with interpretive media. PositiveFeedback and The Noguchi Museum invite you to a pre-Valentine’s-Day event to initiate new and meaningful relationships, before celebrating romantic partnerships.

“Partnering for the Climate: An Artist/Scientist Mixer,” on Sunday, February 12, 2012, will provide stimulating discussion and ample time for mixing with fellow artists, scientists, and community members active in climate change issues in New York City. It’s also the perfect follow-up to last month’s Speed Dating Event for Artists and Scientists- if you were matched with a fellow participant, invite them to be your “date”! 

“Civic Action: A Vision for Long Island City” artist Mary Miss and leading scientist Eric Sanderson will discuss how interpretive media and collaboration between artists and scientists can help us to better understand and respond to global warming. Wine and refreshments will be provided.

Getting there: Use the N,Q, or F subway lines, or the museum’s shuttle, which leaves at 2:30 pm from Park Avenue and 70th in Manhattan. Full information here.

The Noguchi Museum is collaborating with PositiveFeedback to present this program as a complement to the exhibition Civic Action. PositiveFeedback is an initiative of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, the Center for Creative Research at NYU, and the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities.
