We are the Storm Portfolio at the Energy Fair, Custer, WI

June 11, 2016

The We are the Storm portfolio will be on display at the Energy Fair in Custer, WI (June 17-19, 2016). Come check it out and say hi.

A little bit about the portfolio:

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 our society. Justseeds, in collaboration with CultureStrike, has forged partnerships between artists and frontline environmental justice organizations to create this provocative, limited-edition art print portfolio called We Are the Storm, which 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 frontline communities most impacted by global warming and destructive environmental practices to the forefront of the climate change discussion.
