I felt a lack of community between the amazing artists working to fight for environmental justice. I believe this is one of the most important moments in history for us to come together. So I created The Greenhouse, a space to share and learn from each other so that we can all become better communicators and activists about the topics that matter to us most.
The Greenhouse is an online community for environmental artists to connect, motivate, and collaborate, growing ideas into action. Members can connect in groups, share their own work of any medium in the Garden, or find resources and have conversations in the Nursery.
What are the
This is a safe space for positive, kind, respectful learning and collaboration. The Greenhouse has a zero-tolerance policy regarding discrimination on basis of race, gender, sexuality, age, disability, or any other aspect of identity. If a user breaks this policy, they will immediately be removed from the community.
Do I qualify as an environmental artist?
Do you care about the world we live in? Do you partake in any creative fields from writing to photography to music to journalism to virtual reality to documentary making and so much more? If so, you are absolutely who this community is made for!
Why is this community
The inaction to address the disproportionate impacts climate change has on marginalized communities can be transcended by art and storytelling. This is a community for people to recharge, refocus, and motivate themselves with hope and compassion as we work to change the world in beautiful ways.
