Creative Climate Awards Exhibit

A month of innovation and art taking on climate change. Be inspired by the movement!

November 7th - December 4th, 9-4:30PM

TECO 1 East 42nd Street, NY, NY

The Human Impacts Institute’s Creative Climate Awards (CCA) are an annual series of events that showcase artists creating climate-inspired, public works. In an effort to inspire us to think more critically about our actions and their impacts, the CCA program uses the arts and creativity to share knowledge, broaden the climate conversation, educate, and incite action.

We welcome you to come visit the exhibit and be inspired by the artwork, learn how to take action, and use that inspiration to create change in your own community.
