With the belief that art has a critical role to play in climate change adaptation awareness and well-being, Creative PEI in partnership with the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation is proud to launch the Climate Artist-in-Residence Program (CAIR).
This iteration of CAIR consists of four Artists-in-Residence, Lisa Theriault, Chanel Briggs, Carrie Allison and Elder Francis Jadis, each of whom have been selected through a curated process in collaboration with partnering organizations, BIPOC USHR, this town is small, and Indigenous PEI.
From September 2023 – September 2024 each Climate Artist-in-Residence will delve into a research-driven art process and emerge from it with a solo exhibition and community events at the gallery within the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation.
Groundwork is a group exhibition by the artists participating in CAIR. To visit the exhibition stop by the Gallery at The Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation in St.Peters, open to the public every Friday throughout the fall from 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM.
