Third Coast Disrupted: Artists + Scientists on Climate

A Climate for Conversation

It started with a convergence of cutting-edge artists and scientists. 

Gathering and talking for a year to explore climate change impacts and

solutions happening in the Chicago area. Their conversation 

inspired new artworks. (Tour them in the video above.)

This leads to more talk about climate change.

This builds momentum. This forges action. This is Third Coast Disrupted.

Third Coast Disrupted was created through a collaboration between Columbia College Chicago, DePaul University's Institute for Nature and Culture, and Terracom.


It is partly supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and the Illinois Science & Energy Innovation Foundation, with additional support from Keith Giles and Christine Skolnik; Openlands; The Nature Conservancy; Clare Butterfield and Edward Maldonado; Patrick and Laura Clark; Debra Shore; Greenleaf Advisors, LLC; The Fogelson Family Foundation; and the Keller Science Action Center, Field Museum.
