Imagine 2200: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors

Lecture

Thursday, October 6

Metcalf Auditorium, Chace Center/RISD Museum

Fix, Grist Magazine’s Solutions Lab, invites you to join a conversation about decolonizing and diversifying climate storytelling, as explored in its climate fiction contest, Imagine 2200: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors. Imagine 2200 judges Grace Dillon, Arkady Martine, and Sheree Renée Thomas will join Fix’s Tory Stephens on the RISD campus to discuss the relationship between climate fiction and climate solutions. They’ll also touch on the craft of weaving climate into all forms of storytelling, and how building deeply intersectional worlds helps create visions for a planet grounded in justice and abundance.

This event is presented in partnership with the RISD Division of Liberal Arts and the RISD Nature–Culture–Sustainability Studies Master’s program, Orion Magazine, and with support from NRDC.
