We are the Storm: Climate Change Print Portfolio features works by CultureStrike and Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative. We are the Storm features art that reflects on the work and resistances of communities and organizations threatened by climate change, and that are organizing to protect life on Earth. The exhibit features 22 artworks created by people of color, migrant, indigenous, and environmentalist artists from across North America.
Climate change continues to have a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable communities around the globe, including migrants and communities of color; people who are typically marginalized in society. CultureStrike, in collaboration with Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, has forged partnerships between artists and front line environmental justice organizations to create a provocative, limited edition art print portfolio called We are the Storm that highlights the effects of climate change on these communities.
The portfolio draws inspiration from the powerful work of grassroots groups that are championing creative and community based solutions to combat climate change and resisting industrial fossil fuel projects, such as the Tar Sands projects, the Keystone pipeline, fracking operations, destructive mining practices, and the transporting and burning of toxic fuels. The featured artworks bring voices from front line communities that are being the most impacted by climate change and destructive environmental practices, to the forefront of the climate change discussion.
