As climate change continues to have catastrophic impacts on our communities, embedding environmental sustainability and vulnerability preparedness into any organization’s work will be increasingly important.
I work with clients to assess current practices and risks,
outline strategies for reducing impacts and vulnerabilities,
build understanding for the importance of this work amongst
staff and key stakeholders, and create simple tools
to monitor improvements as they happen.
I also work with community development and planning
partners to engage local artists and cultural organizations
in resilience and preparedness efforts. Not only do many
arts sector professionals share their community’s concerns
about climate change, they are great at imagining possible
futures, experts at developing creative solutions to
stubborn challenges, and strong allies who can build
awareness through their own programming and
audience engagement work.
