Event description

Description

Prior the presentation and Q&A session, Richard Heinberg will be joined by Carl Straussner for a violin-guitar duo.

And the Band Played On?

The looming crises of the 21st century and what they mean for today’s young artists

What does the rest of the 21st Century hold in store for us? If what we see all around us is any indication — growing climate-related disasters, economic inequality and stagnation, political divisiveness, and environmental stresses of all kinds — we are in for a bumpy ride.

Please join award-winning author, educator, and avid musician Richard Heinberg for an exploration of the sustainability crises of the 21st century and what unique challenges and opportunities these present for young artists.
