Race, Space and the Environment

This interdisciplinary, interactive multimedia project brings together artists, scholars, technologists and community leaders from Syracuse and South Africa to investigate the intersections of race and the environment, specifically the impacts of current environmental crises on marginalized populations.

Through the Race, Space and the Environment project, we look to better understand what it means to collaborate in times of crisis while navigating cultural and socioeconomic differences.
