October 7 @ 6:30 pm-7:30 pm| Free
Avian Outfitters: Adaptation gear for birds facing climate change: Jennie O discusses her playful STEAM collaboration with ornithologist Dr. Kevin Fraser as part of the Eco-Craft Exhibition showing until October 29/’22 at C2 Centre for Craft.
Internationally-showing artist Jennie O’s poignant whimsy overlays the urgent topic of climate change in a collaboration with ornithologist Dr. Kevin Fraser. Together they created the Adaptation Birds – birds outfitted with external tools for battling the survival challenges of changing habitat and weather patterns. Moderator J. A. Süss and Jennie O discuss how she and Kevin bonded on their love of the outdoors, how she believes humans can vastly adjust our behaviour, and how she finds hope for the future by listening to scientists and researchers.
