We Are the Asteroid: Art and the Ecological Crisis

Apr 19, 2020

La Historia Society - Community and Society

Welcome to La Historia Society's initiative, 'We Are the Asteroid: Art and the Ecological Crisis' - a platform that harnesses the power of art to address and create awareness about the pressing ecological crisis that our world faces today.

Why Art and the Ecological Crisis?

The ecological crisis is perhaps one of the most significant challenges humanity has ever encountered. It demands immediate attention, innovative solutions, and collective action. At La Historia Society, we firmly believe that art possesses the ability to transcend boundaries, evoke emotions, and inspire meaningful change.

Art, in its various forms, gives voice to the silenced and raises awareness about critical issues. It has the power to ignite conversations, challenge existing norms, and stimulate dialogue among individuals from different walks of life. By leveraging art, we can mobilize communities, shift perceptions, and encourage society to take concrete steps towards a sustainable future.

How 'We Are the Asteroid' Works

'We Are the Asteroid' is an interdisciplinary initiative that encourages artists, creatives, and individuals with a passion for the environment to contribute their unique talents and perspectives towards the greater cause. Through this initiative, we aim to:

  1. Facilitate Engaging Art Exhibitions: We organize thought-provoking art exhibitions that explore the various dimensions of the ecological crisis. These exhibitions serve as a platform for artists to showcase their work while stimulating conversations around critical environmental issues.
  2. Promote Collaborative Art Projects: We foster collaborations between artists, scientists, activists, and community members to create impactful art projects that shed light on the interconnectedness of ecological challenges. These projects aim to inspire collective action and provoke positive change.
  3. Support Artists as Environmental Advocates: We provide resources, mentorship, and opportunities to artists who are dedicated to using their work to address environmental concerns. Through our network, we connect artists with like-minded individuals and organizations, amplifying their messages and impact.
  4. Engage the Community: We host workshops, seminars, and discussions that engage the local community in dialogues surrounding the ecological crisis. These events aim to educate, inform, and empower individuals to take proactive steps towards building a sustainable future.

Since its inception, 'We Are the Asteroid' has left a significant impact, both locally and globally.
