The Trinidad and Tobago Climate Network held its inaugural event, an art and writing exhibition around the theme of "Perspectives of Trinidad and Tobago on the Just Transition." This exhibition of pieces aimed to explore the diverse viewpoints and creative expressions of artists and writers in relation to the urgent issue of climate change and the concept of a just transition. The exhibition will be followed by a publication featuring the artwork and writings, portraying the unique perspectives of the Trinidadian and Tobagonian community.
"Perspectives of Trinidad and Tobago on the Just Transition" brings together a rich tapestry of artistic and literary works that delve into the complexities and challenges of climate change and the just transition. Through visual art, poetry, blogs, and other literary forms, the exhibition sought to ignite dialogue, raise awareness, and promote collective action towards a sustainable future.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the Trinidad and Tobago Climate Network will be producing a special publication titled "Perspectives of Trinidad and Tobago on the Just Transition." This anthology will feature the artworks, poetry, essays, short stories, and other creative writings that were submitted in the exhibition. It will serve as a lasting record of the diverse voices and artistic expressions that emerged from this collaborative effort.
The publication will be available for purchase through the Trinidad and Tobago Climate Network following the exhibition and at the Legal Deposit at NALIS. All proceeds from the publication will go towards supporting future initiatives aimed at adaptation, solutions building and addressing the impacts of climate change in Trinidad and Tobago.
