Environmental Arts and Justice

Environmental Arts and Justice

Faculty of Environmental & Urban Change

Choose a degree that centres on solutions for a just and equitable world.

By mixing critical thinking and creative artistic practice, you will understand how political, cultural, economic and social systems and structures shape the global environmental crisis. You will be equipped with the practical skills and knowledge to analyze, challenge and respond to this crisis, and evaluate and propose analytical, innovative and sustainable responses.

This highly interdisciplinary program merges courses in literature, social science, environmental science, media production, performance and art with hands-on learning opportunities in and outside the classroom. You’ll develop leadership, analytical, collaborative and presentation skills – key to envisioning and realizing a better environmental future.

You will explore these critical issues:

  • Climate change
  • Loss of biodiversity
  • Resource extraction
  • Food justice
  • Environmental racism
  • Indigenous sovereignty and decolonization
  • Space/place and land ethics
  • Human-animal-plant relations
  • Gender identities and relationships

Our program embraces an expansive view of environmental arts and art making to include community artists, experimental art forms and those with little or no artistic training (no portfolio or background in the arts is required to enter).
