The Climate Museum will be kicking off our Second Fridays programming with the first panel in our climate and inequality conversation series titled "Talking Climate: Displacements" on Jan 8 from 1-2 pm EST, followed by " Gulf Coast Stories," an intimate craft talk with Vann R. Newkirk II of The Atlantic and the Floodlines podcast, and photographer Virginia Hanusik.
Dear Friends of the Climate Museum,
We’re excited to kick off Second Fridays at the Climate Museum with the launch of our discussion series Talking Climate! Join us on the second Friday of every month for conversations about climate and inequality, with additional special events featured throughout the year. You’re enthusiastically invited to our inaugural discussion, Talking Climate: Displacements, this Friday, January 8, from 1-2pm EST. Displacements, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by Gulf Coast Stories, with limited attendance (register now!)
We extend our deep gratitude to the Mellon Foundation for making this work possible.
On Friday, we’ll examine how the climate crisis has catalyzed new forms of uprooting, including climate gentrification, land loss, and forced migration. We will also discuss ongoing displacements that shape how climate is experienced amid the long-standing inequalities and historical dispossessions that structure the present.
Our Second Fridays programming will continue immediately after the panel from 2:10-2:40pm EST with Gulf Coast Stories, an exclusive conversation between Vann Newkirk and Virginia Hanusik on their creative processes and their research and storytelling in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. This program is available for a limited number of pre-registered attendees with a suggested donation, and a number of spots have been spoken for, so be sure to sign up if you’re interested! The Climate Museum’s Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow Dilshanie Perera will facilitate the discussion.
ASL interpretation will be provided at Displacements and closed captioning will be provided at Gulf Coast Stories. To request additional accommodations or for inquiries about accessibility, please contact Dilshanie Perera at [email protected] or (215) 820-4294.
