At the interface of academia and art – ClimateExistence Conference 2016 April 6-8 in Sigtuna, Sweden

January 13, 2016

We live in a world shadowed by the ongoing climate change crisis. This crisis is often conveyed using numbers and figures – rather than stories of human experiences. The changes proposed are often focused on economic or technological solutions – rather than moral or psychological aspects. Very little is said about the need to question our lifestyles, worldviews and relationships with the more-than-human world, in our response to climate change.

This is the third time The Sigtuna Foundation and CEMUS come together to host the Climate Existence conference. With this undertaking, we wish to create a transdisciplinary conversation that challenges how we talk and think about our role as humans in an era of climate change and ecological unravelling. 

The conference will also be an exploration of the interface between the worlds of academia and art, inviting a wide range of contributions that open up new ways of relating to the predicament we find ourselves in.

In short: We want to address how the current climate crisis relates to what is at the very core of our existence: to consider Climate Existence.
