How will art survive us?

Tal Beery

CLUE+ Research Institute for Culture, History and Heritage

Art, Culture and History


Facing social and ecological changes that may threaten the very survival of our species, our times require large-scale collective adaptation. The arts, and arts institutions, are crucial here. They hold space for new stories and act as arenas for the rehearsal of new structures and modes of engagement that will be the most effective tools for surviving what we have become.

Tal Beery will present on two artist-run institutions he has co-founded to help address these issues. Eco Practicum, an artist-run school for ecological justice, offers immersive and experiential education in environmental and social justice to promising undergraduate students from around the world.School of Apocalypse creates opportunities for collaboration between artists, scientists, thinkers, and concerned people of all kinds who wish to connect creative practice and notions of survival.
