Open Call for Science-based Climate Art Inspired by Agency
Mar 5 @ 12:00 pm – Mar 31 @ 1:00 pm
Open Call for Science-based Climate Art Inspired by Agency

Agency: A virtual art show reflecting the themes of global citizenship

Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in May 1-30, 2021  on this website and be highlighted during our May 15-16  online conference, called “Greetings, Earthlings”

“Agency” can be defined as the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power. How can artists act as agents to address the real and imagined boundaries of our planet in relation to the climate crisis? What responsibility do we have as visual thinkers to generate momentum for change? How can art elevate a discussion about borders, civic responsibility, kindness, humanitarianism, justice, and stewardship in the Anthropocene? Works from all media will be considered including, but not limited to, photography, video, sculpture, installation, multimedia works, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

  • Submission FREE: There are no fees to submit your work
  • Eligibility: Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent
  • Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show
Background Brief: 

Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability,  is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.

Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.

Are you concerned about how COVID may affect your career? You are certainly not alone. Right now, many students feel extra stressed about finding employment and exploring career options. With so much anxiety and uncertainty, we must come together (virtually!) and learn how to manage.

Fortunately, businesses have figured out a few things over the last year. So, we’re hosting a discussion panel with some MSU alumni who are human resource executives and are eager to share what they know with other Spartans. Join us on March 10 at 4pm EST to talk about our present situation and hear guidance on how to navigate the current employment landscape. Students of all majors and degree levels are welcome.

Registration required to receive Zoom link and code.

Panelists: Laura Kozlowski, Human Resources Senior Director, Global Talent Management for Whirlpool Carrie Rosingana, Chief Executive Officer and Equal Opportunity Officer for Michigan Works! Jim Nestor, Chief Human Resources Officer for Katz, Sapper & Miller John Lynn, Vice President of Human Resources for Uniroyal Engineered Products, LLC
