Watch it Again – Panel: The Paradox of Art and Climate Change

Featuring TNS General Manager and Dramaturg for The Year of No Return, Melissa Lim

Also featuring Matthew Schneider-Mayerson, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Yale-NUS College, and Felipe Cervera as facilitator.

With climate change at the top of the global conversation, artists have emerged as some of the most vocal exponents for the shifting of climate paradigms, by making work that raises awareness and tackles the issues of climate change on the socio-political level.

However, we cannot deny that the creation of artistic work can also be deeply unfriendly to the environment. Be it flying international artists around the world or the high consumption of electricity for a production, how can we reconcile the need to make work responding to the crisis with the environmental costs of execution?

Join our panellists of academics and practitioners, including Melissa Lim, General Manager of The Necessary Stage, Matthew Schneider-Mayerson, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Yale-NUS College, along with moderator Felipe Cervera, as they unpack this paradox.
