Documentary Photographers Explore the Climate Crisis
July 5 – through July 31
The Umbrella Arts & Environment and The Umbrella Visual Arts programs, in partnership with the Concord, MA-based Social Documentary Network/ZEKE Magazine, present an exciting new exhibition of world-class documentary photography emphasizing long-term sustainable solutions to the climate crisis including the Indigenous People’s Burn Network in the western United States; Nemo’s Garden in Italy — the world’s first underwater greenhouse; the African Women Rising’s Permagarden Program in Uganda, and others. The exhibition is inspired by the Spring 2022 issue featuring projects by Kiliii Yuyan, Giacomo d’Orlando, Sarah Fretwell, and veteran climate journalist Antonia Juhasz.
