I'M/Migration exhibition

How does climate change effect migration? What are population shifts, increasing ethnic and cultural mixing bringing to our shared futures? We invited artists to submit works, ideas, images, films to address both the richness and the problems that we are facing in the next decade with mass migrations inevitably occurring as island nations go under water, farmers lose arable land from Africa to Australia, and the concept of borders is challenged.  

Starting with the renowned environmental artists, Helen and Newton Harrison, who were some of the pioneers in looking at ecological systems with a creative eye to solutions, the show explores not only issues of immigration and migration, but how climate is influencing these shifts.

We are honored to be partnering with RECFAM in Ghana, and their project PRIDEPAD, which enables young girls to get an education by staying in school with sanitary pads available at an affordable cost. Director Nsodu Mbinglo has worked tirelessly to bring mechanical machines to Ghana so that the local women are able to create their own pads, with organic materials, and thus also create a cottage industry for them to have economic independence. Projects like PridePad are keeping young girls and women in school, reducing their chances of migrating to cities where there is the danger of entering sex trades and poverty. We celebrate this project and look forward to artists who can help us raise awareness through their images, graphics, ideas!
