The Natural History Museum designed a pop-up exhibition to function as a backdrop and stage set for The Foundry Theatre’s Dialogue Series, inspired by Naomi Klein’s book This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs. the Climate. Installations featured quotes and graphics inspired by the book.
The dialogue series featured celebrated thinkers, activists, journalists, policy-makers and artists exploring ways to make our world last longer. A series of four events examined the impact of climate change on the body, the community, the country and the planet.
The Natural History Museum team moderated and participated in two of the dialogue events, with author Vijay Prashad, Paulina Helm-Hernandez–director of the Atlanta-based movement organization Southerners on New Ground, and Elizabeth Yeampierre–director of UPROSE, a community-based climate justice organization in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
