Organized by Raha Behnam, this gathering aims to incite, inspire and generate conversation, questions and action in this time of unprecedented global ecological and economic crisis.

Asking a series of timely questions as artists residing in a country with the most historically and presently destructive policies globally, as well as the most rampant use of energy and resources, we consider:

How are we responsible? What does our art making have to do with this crisis? What are our options for engagement, and what will we choose to do together? Please join us to consider these urgent questions in each others’ company.

The quote “Another world is not only possible...” in the title of this Studies Project is by Arundhati Roy.
