2023 Changing Climate Residency

The 2023 International Thematic Residency, Changing Climate, addresses the most critical issue of our time. For the Changing Climate Open Call, SFAI seeks to support artistic exploration, creative activism, and community art actions related to global warming that inspire individual transformation and inform collective action.

Do we believe we can curb carbon impacts or even reverse the current carbon trajectory and subsequent climate devastation?

The goal to stay under 1.5 degree increase is a global mandate that is dependent on collective social, corporate and political responsibilities and actions that will impact all life on our planet. This question also touches on all of SFAI’s prior thematic investigations: food security, migration and displacement, water rights and drought, equal justice, historical truth and contemporary reckoning, labor and the nature of work, revolutionary thinking and the need for radical, systemic change.

SFAI encourages proposals from artists, activists, culture bearers, and creative practitioners whose work aligns with the theme through the lens of radical connection. Review our Guiding Questions for more information.
