Participants listen to climate stories collected in the Adirondack Park and then create art inspired by these stories. University of Rochester professors Stephanie Ashenfelder and Rose Pasquarello Beauchamp use the creative process to guide participants to moments of reflection and discussion. Participants may choose to respond to a climate story through movement, spoken word, visual arts, or creative writing. The conclusion of the workshop focuses on how creative responses to climate change can impact us both personally and in our community.
