Get Involved

There are multiple ways to get involved with our project.

Are you a University of Rochester Undergraduate Student wanting to take a course on Climate Change and the Arts?

Enroll in Climate Interventions: Performing Arts & New Media offered Spring 2023 and Spring 2024! This humanities course based in the arts combines the study of performing, visual arts and new media with history and theory to convey a breadth of stories about the human experience of climate change. In this interdisciplinary, collaborative course, students will be introduced to the multi-faceted use of the arts in designing for and expressing a vision for a sustainable future. Working with community partners, our research and story collection in the Adirondack park will be used to inspire projects in the course.  Collaboration, design thinking, and the iterative design process will be used to produce performances and art work that respond to the stories of the changing climate in the Adirondack park. It will move through multiple units of theoretical study as students simultaneously work on their creative projects.

Are you a University of Rochester Undergraduate or Graduate Student looking for a summer research opportunity?

Enroll in ADK Climate Stories: Audio Archiving. The expectation for our summer research students are that you collaborate with faculty mentors and the digital scholarship lab to catalogue and construct an audio archive of these stories that will be shared with our community partner, the Adirondack Council. This research is for credit. This project can be done remotely. Contact: for more information.

Are you a University of Rochester Undergraduate Student looking for a PAID summer fellowship opportunity?

Along with faculty members, fellows will be working to collect climate stories in
a variety of locations in the park, help faculty transition into the art-making portion of the project and participate in the planning and execution of an artist’s retreat in
Minerva, NY. Fellows will also have the opportunity to live in the
Adirondacks and work a with a sustainability leader, The Wild Center in Tupper Lake,
