ABOUT THE SERIES
As we navigate our future within the ongoing climate emergency, we seek different frameworks to help guide our learning and our actions. In Below the Radar’s The Climate Imaginary series we touch on disinformation, links between the arts and climate activism, and the challenges in making real environmental change.
To visualize a better future, Below the Radar invites guests from across artistic and academic disciplines to discuss ways of working in solidarity amidst the climate crisis. We feature conversations that range from the unique power of creative works to mobilize people, to the importance of collaboration and interdependence across fields.
The Climate Imaginary and Below the Radar are recorded on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
