At Climate Love Project we believe that we need community, empathy, creativity and a whole lot of love to take on the challenges of our time. That's why we make creative kid activities using art as a form of activism, otherwise known as artivism.
What is artivism you may wonder? Artivism is a portmantu word made up of art + activism. According to Wikipedia, the term grew from "a 1997 gathering between Chicano artists from East Los Angeles and the Zapatistas in Chiapas, Mexico." Now artists and climate activists around the world are using artivism to communicate the impacts and solutions to climate change.
At Climate Love Project, designing and launching creative kid activities that build community, teach emotional intelligence and creative thinking make us happy and hopeful. We hope it will do the same for you.
Our story began with a Little Library. Our community built it collaboratively and it has become a place in our neighborhood where we gather to connect, celebrate, grieve or find a good book. We update it every couple of years as a community building creative kid activity!
Since then, Climate Love Project has blossomed to include projects at the neighborhood, community and international scales. Our climate change interactive activities range from art nights with the neighborhood to workshops with a local youth organization or activities to do at home with your family.
