On Friday, the 9th of October, MediaFutures co-organised a panel discussion entitled “The Stories We Tell Ourselves: Misinformation and Climate Change” during the S+T+ARTS Day at Ars Electronica Festival.
The session “The Stories We Tell Ourselves: Misinformation and Climate Change”, as part of the S+T+ARTS Day at Ars Electronica Festival, focused on the need to be aware of the actual mechanisms implied in climate change, highlighting the fact that the news can be confusing and misleading.
Therefore, the physicist Bernd Hezel, a climate expert working at the Climate Media Factory (DE), Marta Handenawer, supported during the first cohort of MediaFutures as members of the collective Domestic Data Streamers with the project ‘730 hours of Violence‘ and Mark Farid, currently supported with his project ‘Invisible Voice‘ some alternative narratives to engage with this world and the one to come. This discussion was moderated by Geraldine de Bastion.
