Why We Won't Just Leave: What Alaska is Telling the World About Climate Change
Virtual Exhibition Curated by Lindsay Carron
Presented by Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC)
A Virtual Gallery Exhibition on Community Responses to Climate Change
Alaska is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world, and climate change impacts range from melting permafrost releasing methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, infrastructure eroding into the ocean, compromised survival of animal species, and changing subsistence patterns affecting food security. Changes in Alaska’s landscape have a global impact. Why We Won’t Just Leave: What Alaska is Telling the World About Climate Change is a virtual exhibition curated by Lindsay Carron and presented by Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) that highlights the responses of Alaskans to their rapidly changing environment. This exhibition delivers messages that are key for us all if we are to reverse climate catastrophe and cultivate a healthy, vibrant future for generations to come.
Why We Won’t Just Leave features portraits, paintings, photography, stories, and video profiles of 20 artists, activists, researchers and community organizers responding to climate change in Alaska.
