Art & Environmental Sustainability - An Educational Workshop Presented by UCI eARTh Studio (For All Ages)
Kick-off the Earth Day weekend with an interactive lecture discussing how you can make the world a more sustainable place! This workshop is open to all ages and highly recommended for youth.
Hosted by the UCI eARTh Studio in conjunction with the Center for Unconventional Security Affairs (CUSA), this presentation will explore simple ways in which people of all ages can contribute to safeguarding the environment. This workshop will have a strong emphasis on how art can be used as a medium to inspire environmental change.
Environmental artist Chris Jordan is a true example of the important role art plays in bringing awareness to the need for sustainability. On April 24th at UC Irvine, Chris Jordan will be receiving the Human Security Award from CUSA in honor of the powerful impact his art has had on the world. Each workshop participant from this day will receive TWO free tickets to the Human Security Award on April 24th. Learn more about Chris Jordan and the Human Security Award here.
All participants will be given the opportunity to pledge their commitment to sustainability and contribute to a community art piece that will be permanently installed in the UCI Newkirk Alumni Center. Chris Jordan will be completing the art piece during his visit in April.
Be a part of the solution and make good happen!
