Creative Factory at COP21 in Paris, France

During the United Nations Climate Change Conference, hundreds of climate artists took over a large hostel to co-create visual and performance art that would bring more visibility to movements and underserved voices. Artists worked alongside indigenous activists, island-nation officials and other community leaders who are most affected yet least heard in the global conversation.
