How do different creative disciplines construct a narrative around ecology and environmentalism? This Long Table discussion will include theater director Karin Coonrod, composer Liz Swados, experts in data visualization from Vizzuality, and faculty from the Parsons Institute for Information Mapping. We invite you to join the discourse surrounding the role of art and design in preserving our planet’s vital resources. The Long Table experiments with participation and public engagement by reappropriating a dinner table atmosphere as a public forum and encouraging informal conversation on serious topics. This event will touch on the connections between science, activism, theater, and design and how people working in these various areas are striving to effect positive social change.
