Participate in a day of Solutions to Climate Health here on the East End!! Be captivated by the feature film 2040 (not yet released in the United States) that shows how our community can positively impact and increase our chances for a healthy planet. Meet people in conversational forums that are well versed in Plant-Based Diet, Regenerative Practices, and Reducing Food Waste. Explore how these strategies can create a healthy climate right here in our home towns as well as around the world.

Screening of 2040 Film
This Australian film by award-winning director, Damon Gameau, is “…a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’ instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.”

Forums
Get informed with short videos on one of our three initiatives, Regenerative Practices – Land & Sea ~ Plant-Rich Diet ~ Reducing Food Waste, then join in a small group discussion with fellow local residents, experts, youth, novices and the curious to discuss ideas, educate and inspire.

Marketplace
Connect with people from different kinds of climate health organizations to learn what’s new, what’s possible and the “how to’s” for implementing changes in your own home.

Drawdown
Drawdown is when concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gasses have peaked and are declining, thus, reversing global warming.

Project Drawdown
Project Drawdown is a research and communication organization that has scientifically identified ‘solutions’ to reverse global warming, 80 of which are already in practice worldwide and 20 of which are in development stages.

Drawdown East End 
Drawdown East End is a grassroots group of citizens representing all five east end towns, with the rewarding mission to actively engage our communities in solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions to achieve drawdown and reverse global warming.

TAKEOVER 2020! Artists in Residence

Saturday Feb 01 - Sunday Apr 12

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
