The "art! ⋈ climate" project
a talk by Dr. Ricardo Dal Farra

The "art! ⋈ climate" project uses art as a catalyst in helping to
build bridges between music/sound art and humanitarian actions related
to climate change, with the intent of engendering a deeper awareness
and creating lasting working partnerships in addressing our global
environmental crisis.

Both the process and the outcomes of this initiative highlight the
value of integrating creative approaches into humanitarian work for
complex risk management issues.

This project has been developed as part of the Balance-Unbalance
international program started by Dr. Ricardo Dal Farra in
collaboration with the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and the
support of the Noosa -UNESCO's designated- biosphere in Australia and
Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and
Technology with its MIT Press published journal.
