Climate Change Arts Camp

A one week summer arts camp in which high school students are taught how to use art forms such as spoken word and mural art to raise awareness on climate change.

Another ore program is our Climate Change Arts Camp. This camp was created to teach Marshallese youth how to use the arts to raise awareness on issues such as climate change. About 30 high school students are selected from every high school in the Marshall Islands to take part in the week-long camp. We bring in artists representing various Pacific Islander heritages to partner with Marshallese artists, who then become the main instructors for the camp. Throughout the week, students learn about the basics of climate change, its’ links to issues such as waste management, coral bleaching, and how it affects our other art forms such as weaving. The students then learn how to incorporate this new knowledge into their art forms.
