  • Arctic Arts:  A Voice for Science with Kerry Koepping and Andrea Sparrow
    The Arctic Arts Project is a team of visual communicators. Through spectacular imagery in film and photography, we document the science of our changing planet, interpreting scientific data to give the public an opportunity to understand how climate change is altering the earth’s systems, and to see what that looks like. We travel to the Arctic most frequently as the pace of change there is so significant and happening so quickly. We also focus on solutions and adaptations at every opportunity, to help people avoid a sense of despair and helplessness. Our job is to bring the current science to life, giving it a visual voice and compelling context.

He is the founder of the non-profit Arctic Arts Project and is dedicated to strengthening environmental sustainability by illuminating environmental problems and issues through the use of science and visual literacy.
    Andrea Sparrow, Executive Producer of the The Arctic Arts Project.  Traveling the planet has given Andrea a window into the natural world, from the tiniest plants and creatures to the great vistas gained from the air. Andrea is an artist, a scientist and an explorer at heart, driven by a desire to understand and possibly, through her visual communications mediums, help change the trajectory on which we find ourselves.
