RGeneration (RGen) is a nonprofit, virtual climate art museum with a transdisciplinary heart. Our artists, curators, and educators will work across the arts, humanities, sciences, and other cultural communities, to create innovative aesthetic exhibits that foreground the problems of, and solutions to, the world’s global climate crisis, including issues of climate justice and possible green futures.
RGen is inspired by research that highlights art as a potent communication tool that can prompt viewers to make new connections between personal values and behavior. Such contemplation is critical to shifting minds and actions in this socially polarized era. Moreover, like a seed vault built to withstand the ravages of climate change, RGen will function as a continually updated digital repository to collect and safeguard climate art through ecological, political, and technological transitions for generations to come.
To traverse economic and social digital divisions, RGen’s content will be created for multiple platforms from phone screens to large displays. Free to all, anyone can visit, anytime, anywhere. They can participate in the community’s collaborative visioning of viable, creative climate change solutions or listen to podcast stories about our artist’s visions for equitably decarbonizing global societies. All this, and more, in the palm of one’s hand.
