This beautifully instructive project was one of Justseeds most popular portfolios and has been out of print for years. One of the project organizers has released one of their personal copies and it will undoubtedly find a home quickly.
Climate change continues to have a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable communities around the globe, including migrants and communities of color – people who are typically marginalized in our society. Justseeds, in collaboration with CultureStrike, has forged partnerships between artists and frontline environmental justice organizations to create this provocative, limited-edition art print portfolio called We Are the Storm, which highlights the effects of climate change on these communities.
The portfolio draws inspiration from the powerful work of grassroots groups that are championing creative and community-based solutions to combat climate change and resisting industrial fossil fuel projects, such as the Tar Sands projects, the Keystone pipeline, fracking operations, destructive mining practices, and the transporting and burning of toxic fuels. The featured artworks bring voices from frontline communities most impacted by global warming and destructive environmental practices to the forefront of the climate change discussion.
The Climate Change Portfolio was organized and produced by Roger Peet, Favianna Rodriguez, and Gabriel Harrison. It was printed by Jesse Purcell at Repetitive Press in Toronto, Canada, and at Inkworks in Oakland, CA. Portfolio cover by Roger Peet.
The Climate Change portfolio was made possible in part by funding from Compton Foundation and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
