We wanted to share a video with you that summarizes Feet to the Fire: Exploring Global Climate Change from Science to Art, our eighteen month campus-wide exploration of climate change using the arts as a catalyst. The project was developed by the Center for the Arts and the Environmental Studies Program in collaboration with faculty, students and community leaders. Feet to the Fire more than confirmed our initial perspectives that not only do the arts and sciences illuminate each other, but also that the arts deepen our experience and comprehension of topics of urgent societal concern.
We send it to you on the occasion of Earth Day 2010, and as a reminder of what is quintessentially Wesleyan: our students and faculty’s capacity to think and act beyond disciplinary boundaries to create original works of art that both educate and inspire.
