Join the Columbia Climate School and the Hudson Valley Shakespeare festival for an exciting night of socializing and storytelling at a picnic, panel, and performance on the brand- new Hudson Valley campus in Garrison, NY!
PLEASE NOTE: This is an in-person outdoor event The venue is located at U.S. 9, Garrison, NY 10524
Creating worlds onstage and making predictions with climate models are two very different ways of imagining and depicting the future, but both hold the power to awe, to inspire, and to shape our actions today. Join us on Thursday, July 21, before a performance of Hudson
Valley Shakespeare Festival's production of Mr. Burns – a "post-electric play"; about a not-so- distant apocalyptic future – for a panel discussion with Climate School and HVSF leaders. This intersection of alternative futures will form the basis of a great conversation about art, science, and The Simpsons.
