Event description
Alliance Française and Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta invite you to the Climate Crisis & Contemporary Culture Kick-Off on June 17th at 12 pm.

About this event

How do words affect our planet? Where do science, the arts, and social sciences converge, diverge, and respond to one another, supplement or disagree, when it comes to communicating on our world’s most imposing problem? How do we explain the unthinkable? And where do the limits of research and divulgation meet the beginnings of speculative thought and the representative arts?

The 2021 joint cultural programming series "Climate Crisis & Contemporary Culture" by the Alliance Française and Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta seeks to explore the diverse means by which we communicate on our current climate crisis.

The Climate Crisis & Contemporary Culture panel discussion kick-off event will bring different voices to a common table, inviting researchers, experts, artists, and performers from internationally renowned universities, industries, and cultural organizations to discuss, debate, and explore the communicative challenges relating to our planet’s climate challenges.

The panelists include:

Emmanuel Tibloux, director of the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (National Academy of the Decorative Arts) in Paris

Frédérique Aït-Touati, historian of literature and modern science, a seventeenth-century specialist, and a theatre director.

Paige Swift, Director of Nature Now Film Festival

Max Gruenig, climate and energy economist, President of Ecologic Institute US from 2015 until 2020, co-founder pocacito

Barbara Dombrowski, photographer, and artist, Tropic Ice, Pastorale, Climate Victims in Five Continents

This is the kickoff of the Climate Crisis & Contemporary Culture event series with more events to come in the fall of 2021.

The event is free to attend, but registration is required in advance to receive the Zoom ID & password. Donations are also accepted and greatly appreciated. Both the Alliance Française and Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta are 501c3 nonprofits and your support allows us to continue offering premiere French and German language courses and cultural experiences.
