Net Impact GPS, EcoArts Foundation, Resilient Coastlines Project of Greater San Diego and Climate Science Alliance present Philadelphia's glacier melt visual artist Diane Burko, who has recently been moved to take up the subject of coral reef mortality. 

Climate Science Alliance (CSA) Director Amber Pairis will speak to the importance of art in community engagement on complex environmental topics. CSA's roster of artists include not only Diane, but Sea Changes’ Kira Corser and Spiral Pacific’s Cynthia Matzke -- who will each present on their experience working at the intersection of art and ocean conservation through community art and documentary. Miss Violette will treat us to music in the name of water conservation.

EcoArts Foundation Director and CSA affiliated eco musician Ashley Mazanec will share the work of her and other organizations within this niche, and serenade you over dinner with her band Ashley & The Altruists.

UCSD's Global Policy & Strategy (GPS) is a short walk east from the Pangaea Parking structure, just past the International House. The building is called Gardner, just to the North of Robinson Auditorium. Parking can be a challenge, so please arrive early.
