ALARM – Responding to our Climate Emergency @ THEMUSEUM
Jan 24 – Sep 27 all-day

Four Exhibits | One Planet (with a dead bee on the left) On June 24, 2019 the City of Kitchener council unanimously declared a climate emergency and we are sounding the ALARM. It is time to take Action and Learn about our effects on climate. We must Adapt our lifestyles, take Responsibility and Mobilize climate action now!

THEMUSEUM looks to use its stage to shine a light on the efforts being done to help conserve a natural climate and make transformative connections to what individuals, corporations and governments must do to chart a new course of optimism for the future.

The anchor, Agents For Change | Facing the Anthropocene, co-curated by Nina Czegledy and Jane Tingley features ten interdisciplinary women artists working on the theme of ecological change at the intersection of science, technology, and art. ALARM will also explore the impact on the melting polar ice caps, water, climate refugees and a family exhibition exploring at-risk species with a focus on the dwindling frog population as they approach the sixth mass extinction.
