Event description
HighWaterLine: Art Tells Climate Change Stories. One of three workshops being offered on the second day of the conference!

About this Event

This workshop introduces place-based community art + talk story methods that help make everyone a storyteller. Art can create a safe and hopeful space for folks to share past experiences, overcome divides, grow empathy, and imagine new futures. Led by Jaimey Hamilton Faris, Associate Professor of Critical Theory and Art History at the University of Manoa, the workshop will share examples of local art projects as models that localize and personalize the stakes of climate change in Hawai‘i. Examples include Kaili Chun’s Hulali i ka la in Waikiki and the HighWaterLine, an experiential citizen engagement art-science walk that traces the future flood zones with a chalk line.

We will focus special attention on the HighWaterLine’s community storytelling processes that connect climate change science to real places and issues. We will talk about how to translate the science using storytelling and creative brainstorming to build trust and cultivate involvement at the community level. Participants will also learn about Kaka‘ako’s natural springs, its indigenous and local history, and its future development in relation to rising high water lines in the area. They will get share their own experiences of climate change in Hawaii and brainstorm potential futures for Kaka‘ako and Hawaii in 20 years.
