Art and Climate Change: An Unexplored Field of Collaboration
Green-collar workers have sought alliances with arts and cultural workers to invoke the power of storytelling, making climate science more approachable and mobilizing the masses to practice climate actions. However, the tendency of seeing arts and culture workers as “storytellers” among Green-collar workers reflects flaws in existing climate action, and is not what arts and culture workers expect to achieve through their work. Contemporary art’s way of responding conceptually and through artistic action also does not meet the green-collar workers’ expectations of “solving rather than responding to the issue.”

The Loss of Cultural Roots: “Subterranean Taiwan” Meets Relocation
In Taiwan, bōng-á, or grave, is a term both familiar and distant. However, the erection of each tomb highlights the substantial collection of cultural values of a place, and each property reflects the craftsmanship, economic status, familial qualities, and geographical features of a site.
