Northern Spark 2016 – Climate Chaos | Climate Rising

On the second Saturday of each June, this free annual dusk-to-dawn, multidisciplinary arts festival draws tens of thousands of Minnesotans each year to interact with giant outdoor projections, temporary installations and performances by local and national artists.

Climate Chaos | Climate Rising explores the interconnected, evolving, long-term consequences of climate change. The science of climate change is complex, and Northern Spark will give the public creative new ways to explore the issue, challenging us to think about and act upon what it means to be fully aware in a time of global interconnection. Artists’ voices and visions will have a platform to help turn a sense of overwhelmment into concrete actions anchored in a realistic and hopeful map for the future.
