Virtual Conference 2020

Time Sensitive

A conference about the intersection of Art-Climate-Science and Deep Time

  • Happening online. Details to come.
  • Free access. Donations welcome.
  • Stay tuned for our online program and how to access the content.

In a society fixated on near-term outcomes, how do art and science think about time and how is that relevant in the climate crisis?


We’ll connect with our usual mix of brainy experts and attendees and work toward a white paper on art-science-climate-time and its potential for innovation in the climate crisis.

  • Panels, Lectures
  • Artists, scientists, advocates, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and scholars of very long term time horizons
