Climate S.O.S features film screenings, hands-on workshops, a new digital art commission, a special edition of ArtScience Late, and a multimedia showcase, that raises awareness of the climate crisis and inspires action to address it. The season explores some of the major threats to our oceans - such as plastic pollution, overfishing and rising sea levels caused by climate change. It also includes a focus on how the Earth’s polar regions – the Arctic and Antarctica - are being transformed by climate change.
“ArtScience Museum has a deep commitment to sustainability. Over the past five years, we have staged several exhibitions, programmes and educational activities that send a clear message about the urgency of taking action to address environmental threats such as climate change and biodiversity loss. Having worked on several projects that investigate the critical issues faced by rainforests in South East Asia, Climate S.O.S switches focus to the sea and the polar regions, with a series of projects that encourage our visitors to take action to protect these ecosystems. We are pleased to be working with like-minded partners such as Eco-Business, the Singapore Eco Film Festival and MeshMinds who share our passion for creating a better future for the environment,” said Honor Harger, Executive Director of ArtScience Museum.
